Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Billy Graham Surprised By New York's Response (EDITOR'S NOTE: Billy Graham's Xew York Crusade Is now In its third week. Almost 10,000 persons have answered his call this far to make "decisions f»r Christ," more than he had anticipated. Graham reviews the progress of his revival in the following story.) By Billy Graham Written for the United Press XEW YORK (UP)—The crusade In New York City has already surpassed our expectations. We had prepared and prayed for two years that the curse of spiritual indifference might be cracked in this city, but we were never prepared for the floodtide of spiritual renewal that we are now witnessing. New York has been termed a city of sophistication and cynicism, but we have found a deep spiritual longing here that is beyond anything we have ever witnessed anywhere in the world. There were many voices warning that New York could not be touched and ' that people here would not respond. The people here are no different frpm those in any village or town across America. Their needs, longings and desires for peace, joy and reality are just as intense on Times Square or in Greenwich Village as they are in Detroit, Minneapolis, or Houston. Perhaps their intensity is even greater, because millions of people in New York are tired of the rush of life. Frustrated and bewildered by the overwhelming social ills of a great city, many feel that they are only a cog in so much machinery. They have almost lost their idBrrtity. They are searching, questing and desperately trying to find the answers to life. During the first two-and-a-half weeks we have seen nearly 10,000 people receive Christ into their hearts. This is by far the largest response we have ever seen anywhere in the world. There is only one plausible explanation for this unprecedented acceptance of Christ—there is a spiritual hunger here that has astounded even ministers who have been here for many years. Secondly, the churches of the- city are probably more united than al any time in recent history. And, thirdly, Christians around the world are praying for us, and their prayers arc" being answered.
