I just learned today of the death of John Stott. I've never had an obituary on my blog before, but I felt I couldn't let this moment go by unmarked. Though I only had the privilege of hearing him speak once, John Stott's books and lifestyle have had a great impact on me, and I can truly say that his was a life well-lived.
John Stott was the one who pointed out to me in his book "The Birds Our Teachers" that Jesus actually commands us to study birds!
