Free Easter Day Sermon Illustration / Introduction

I’m not preaching on Easter Day this year. But if I were, I’d be using this as my sermon illustration and/or introduction.

BBC News – ‘Oldest’ marathon runner Buster Martin dies

A London man who claimed to be the world’s oldest marathon runner has died.

He features in a film by American documentary-maker Mark Wexler being released in the US in May, called How to Live Forever.

A biography on the website for the film that features Mr Martin, described him as “Britain’s oldest working man” and said he enjoyed “a beer or two and 20 cigarettes daily”.

Since I can’t use it, this story is now going free to a good home. Enjoy!
