John Stott is retiring

Adrian Warnock posts this announcement from The Langham Partnership:
"John Stott would like his many friends around the world to know that, having reached the age of 86 in April, he has taken the decision finally to retire from public ministry after fulfilling one final speaking engagement at the upcoming Keswick Convention in July.

He will be moving from his flat in central London where he has lived for more than 30 years, to a retirement community for Anglican clergy in the south of England, which will be able to provide more fully for his present and future needs. Dr Stott has made this decision with the strong belief that it is God's provision for him at this stage."
John Stott, has impacted many of us. His ministry has spanned many decades. He was and is a leader among leaders.
His writings include Basic Christianity, and The Cross of Christ. He was also the principal framer of the Lausanne Covenant.
