Sunday Extra: Leighton’s Vancouver Crusade
O Lamb of God, I come! On the warm night of Aug. 30, 1965, in Denver, Colorado, this 13-year-old kid heard these words in the song “Just as I Am” and walked forward and asked Christ into my heart. Today, you are going to get a real treat by hearing thousands of people at the Vancouver Crusade singing the song that has drawn millions like me to take the walk of their life, plus Leighton sharing some thoughts about that event. You will also get a glimpse of his sermon from the Japan Crusade, then finally, Leighton will close with a special message to each of us. Special note, we are all excited about celebrating Leighton’s 90 birthday on Oct. 22; as a part of that, on Oct. 24, we will be sending out a link for a live stream of Leighton at Myers Park Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC.
