‘He changed my life’: 5 remembrances of Tim Keller
Grammy award-winning artist Lecrae took to his Facebook page to give his condolences over the death of Keller, saying that the notable pastor was there in times of spiritual pain and “he changed my life.”
“His words have been a light in dark places for me. I’ve never expressed how he brought me thru the worst seasons of my life, how his refusal to be a part of the Evangelical Industrial Construct was empowering for my soul,” Lecrae said.
“When racism and cancel culture detoured me, Tim Keller was a consistent voice and for a season in 2017 he was the only non person of color I could listen to. He welcomed me to so much and brought me through so much.”
Lecrae also pointed to how he had been a contributing author to one of Keller’s books, and that he considered Keller to be a “modern day hero of the faith.”
“He pastored with no scandals and will be regarded as a scholar and leader for a generation. I’m honored to have known you sir. Rest in Jesus,” he added.
