Sunday’s Quote: An exemplar of redemption

c/o Randy Thomas
Having served as Special Counsel to President Nixon, Charles W. Colson pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice as one of the “Watergate Seven.” His emergence from the Maxwell Correctional Facility in 1975 after a seven-month incarceration was the first step into a new life that ultimately garnered 15 honorary doctorates, the Templeton Prize and the Presidential Citizens Medal in lieu of impacting millions around the world for Christ. You can bet that Mr. Colson is now Home.


“If Mr. Colson can repent of his sins, there just has to be hope for everybody.”
~ from a 1973 Boston Globe editorial, “Amen, Brother," quoted in Colson’s book, Born Again (p. 183)
