John Stott and Paul Simon

From a tribute article in World Magazine after Stott’s death:

[Stott’s] friends were not limited to Christian circles. After a 2004 article about Stott authored by David Brooks ran in The New York Times, singer Paul Simon asked Brooks to introduce him to Stott. The two eventually had tea together for several hours in Stott’s modest two-room apartment. Simon began by complaining about specific members of the religious right, until Stott interrupted him to say, “I am more interested in what you think of Jesus Christ.” Simon later phoned Brooks to thank him for the introduction.
