Reverend Billy Graham Reflects on Working Toward Peace

[Peace] is not a mere cessation of hostilities, a momentary halt in a hot or cold war. Rather, it is something positive. It is a specific relationship with God into which a person is brought. It is a spiritual reality in a human heart which has come into vital contact with the infinite God.

A Note From Photographer Michael Collopy

After I photographed Reverend Graham, he entered a press conference with hundreds of reporters and photographers. As he was leaving, one of the interviewers asked him to pray for his ailing mother. Reverend Graham stopped immediately and prayed with the man as if he were the only person in the room, and as if it were the most important task of his day.
