We at Heritage were saddened to learn of the death of Christian leader, cultural commentator and former White House counselor Charles W. “Chuck” Colson.
As an author, speaker and laborer in the vineyard, Chuck spent the past four decades encouraging others to escape poverty, addiction, hopelessness and dependence on government — and to embrace life and liberty. Through his Prison Fellowship Ministries, at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and in partnership with countless allies — including Heritage on our “Seek Social Justice” project — it truly can be said that Chuck did the Lord’s work.
His was an unlikely, amazing journey of redemption. We, like so many others, will miss his cheerful, winsome presence on the battlefields and the mission fields.
Well done, Chuck. We’re lifting you, Patty and the entire Colson family in our prayers.
