Chuck Colson served in the Nixon White House as a "hatchet man" and one of Nixon's closest administration aids. As Nixon lost his Presidency, Chuck Colson went to prison for his misdeeds in Nixon's inner circle.
Colson learned the hard way that absolute power corrupts absolutely. During this period in Colson's life, he suffered the consequences of his life of power and intrigue. He was convicted and went to prison. But, he also learned a valuable lesson that is available to all of us. He learned that no matter what crimes one has committed in the past, forgiveness and reconciliation is available to all.
Chuck Colson paid his debt to society and went on to be the foremost advocate for prison reform in this country. Through his organization, Prison Fellowship Ministry, he has shown prisoners in the United States and throughout the world that they are valued by their creator and can become productive members of society.
I have been a supporter and volunteer with Prison Fellowship Ministry for about 20 years now and have seen personally the way God can change hardened criminals into men and women whose only desire is to be of service to their their fellow man.
