I haven’t looked at many blogs lately, so perhaps this news is on someone else’s blog that I missed. I came across it this morning on an e-mail from Leadership Journal. In the midst of all the celebrities who have died in the last week, it seems none of the popular media has reported on the passing of Larry Burkett, something of a Christian celebrity. So it seemed worth mentioning here.
Larry Burkett gave financial advice that was conservative and helpful to many. I haven’t always followed his advice, but I appreciated his ministry. I was also always aware of him, since as a single woman working for a Christian TV ministry in the late 80s, co-workers and people I was in contact with for work-related things always asked if I was related to him. My maiden name is Burkett, but we were not related.
