Graham shares what he has learned about reflecting on politics and Scripture, old age and death, mysteries and moderation. He notes that he looks at death and dying more frequently now. He also focuses less on the literal translation of Scripture and more on the promises of Christianity. He considers each day of life to be a gift.
