Chuck Colson, a prominent figure in the Watergate Scandal, went to prison and came out a changed man. He began a very successful prison ministry and was responsible for turning around many hundreds of lives. When the Russian Orthodox Church revived after the fall of Communism, it asked Chuck Colson to come teach them about building prison ministries. It is worth noting that Mr. Colson also received criticism for his work, often from other ministers, many of whom had never worked in prison ministry. Chuck Colson fell asleep in the Lord last weekend. Rest well Chuck, after a job well done.
