I heard last night of John Stott’s death on Wednesday at the age of 90.
I wrote a tribute to John a few months ago on the occasion of his 90th birthday. He influenced me in countless ways, and I will always be grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a few days with him back in 1990 and to get to know him a little. In his last talk at the Keswick Convention he said that the goal of the Christian life is Christlikeness, and to me he was truly a Christlike man. Rest in peace and rise in glory, Uncle John!
John’s church, All Souls’ Langham Place, has a fine tribute page here.
The Langham Partnership Tribute is here.
The Daily Telegraph has a very fine (and mostly accurate) obituary here.
The Archbishop of Canterbury’s tribute is here.
The Church Times notice is here.
There are other tributes by Phil Ritchie, Simon Nicholls, Doug Chaplin, Archbishop Cranmer, Archdruid Eileen, Mark Meynall, Peter Kirk, and many others (Google ‘John Stott’ and you’ll be reading for hours).
There is also an online remembrance book.
