ERLC's Land presents Distinguished Service Award to Ted Stone widow


WAKE FOREST, N.C. (BP) — Richard Land presented the 2006 Richard D. Land Distinguished Service Award of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission to Anne Stone in honor of her late husband, Ted Stone, prior to chapel at Southeastern Seminary March 20.

Stone, a 72-year-old evangelist from Durham, N.C., was nearly a month into his fourth “Walk across America” when he died on July 16 of last year. He trekked across the nation, stopping at churches and other places along the way to share his testimony of God’s saving grace from drug addictions – which he himself had experienced.

Stone ministered to many people struggling with addictions and encouraged them with hope from the Bible.

Stone’s widow and one of his three daughters accepted the honor on behalf of the family.

Stone also served as a member of the board of visitors for Southeastern and as a member of the board of trustees for Southwestern Seminary.
