Billy wrapped his arm around her and pulled her under his shoulder. She stood in his fatherly embrace with a look of sheer contentment.

I once read the book “Nestle, Don’t Wrestle” by Corrie Ten Boom. The power of nestling was evident on the TV screen that day. Billy Graham was not the least bit condemning, distant, or hesitant to embrace a public personality who may not fit the evangelistic mold. His grace and courage are sometimes stunning.

In an interview with Hugh Downs, on the 20/20 program, the subject turned to homosexuality. Hugh looked directly at Billy and said:

“If you had a homosexual child, would you love him?”

Billy didn’t miss a beat. He replied with sincerity and gentleness:

“Why, I would love that one even more.”

The title of Billy’s autobiography, “Just As I Am,” says it all.

His life goes before him speaking as eloquently as that charming southern drawl for which he is known. If, when I am eighty years old, my autobiography were to be titled “Just As I Am,” I wonder how I would live now?
