This morning I learned of the death of Michael Green.
Michael was rector of St. Aldate’s in Oxford, headed up the Archbishop of Canterbury’s evangelism office during the ‘Decade of Evangelism’ and was my tutor at Wycliffe Hall.
He was the man who told me to marry Lauren and helped me to better understand preaching in an evangelistic context. (So grateful for the former, but it took me a while to appreciate the latter.)
Michael was with us during the 2008 Lenten preaching series, and you can listen to his sermons here >>
Also, there’s a 2010 video conversation with him here:
I rejoice that he is now with the Lord whom he served for so many years here on earth. Please join with me in giving thanks for his life and ministry, but also praying for Rosemary, his wife, and the rest of the family.
