Palin Dines, Prays With Rev. Billy Graham in N.C.

Sarah Palin, who is on a book tour to promote her best-seller "Going Rogue: An American Life," made a stopover in Montreat, N.C., on Sunday to have dinner with evangelist Billy Graham and his son Franklin.

"He saw that she was going to be in the area and he said to come by," Jeremy Blume, a spokesman for Franklin Graham, told the Charlotte Observer.

Franklin Graham met the former GOP vice presidential candidate at the airport in Asheville, and they headed for 91-year-old Billy Graham's mountaintop home in Montreat for dinner.

Early this year, Palin accompanied Franklin Graham as Samaritan's Purse, an international relief agency he heads, delivered 44,000 pounds of groceries to Eskimo families in Alaska who had been hit with a harsh winter, the Observer disclosed.

During last year's presidential campaign, Republican candidate John McCain made a courtesy call on Billy Graham. His Democratic opponent Barack Obama scheduled a meeting with the elderly Graham during a stop in Ashville, but Graham, who is ailing, was not up to a visit at the time.
