Norman A. Carlson Speaks of Chuck Colson
"My personal relationship with Chuck Colson began several months after his release from Federal prison. A friend and fellow Iowan, former U.S. Senator Harold Hughes, asked if they could see me. During the meeting, Chuck described his vision of developing faith-based programs to bring hope and support into correctional institutions across the country. The vision Chuck talked about that day went on to become Prison Fellowship, a program that continues to touch the lives of countless offenders and their families throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Chuck was a truly brilliant visionary, a man who understood human frailties and wanted to bring Christ's love and compassion into the lives of the downtrodden. His life exemplified the admonition for all of us contained in Micah 6: 'to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.' "
