Billy Graham considered leaving his final sermon on a recording, giving mourners a chance to respond to the gospel at his graveside. His message: ‘I’m not here in person today, I’m in heaven. But I want to tell you this is a wonderful place to be and if you want to come here you need to repent of your sins and come to Christ.’
