Colson Gets Better

Chuck Colson, the lawyer who became special counsel to President Richard Nixon, found himself plunging from a position of power, prestige, and money to a federal prison on a Watergate related charge. But what could have been seen as life's greatest defeat propelled him into a major ministry, as he became a Christian and founded his Prison Fellowship in 1976. With more than 17,000 volunteers and 170 staff working in 31 countries, Colson leads a ministry of significant influence. Defeats can make you either bitter or better. I thank God that Colson allowed his defeats to make him better. ? Copyright 2002 Steve Miller - All Rights Reserved
