Statement from Sen. Dan Newberry on Passing
of Oral Roberts
Sen. Dan Newberry (R-Tulsa) today issued the following
statement regarding the passing of Oral Roberts:
“Today the world mourns the passing of a great man, a great
leader and a great mentor, who leaves behind an indelible legacy
of ministry and service.
His impact stretched beyond the boundaries of our state to every
corner of the world. Age never diminished his passion for the gospel.
He finished the race with zeal, and in a manner befitting a man
of his tremendous character and unwavering faith.
I was privileged to know Dr. Roberts personally and his words
of wisdom will be with me forever. He was always ready to give words
of encouragement and direction. Dr. Roberts took the time to hear
from God and conveyed the message with passion, such as ‘God
is a good God’, ‘Something good is going to happen to
you’ and ‘Expect a Miracle’, words that are still
relevant today. I can never adequately convey my gratitude for the
legacy he leaves and he will be greatly missed.”
