NBC News produces an annual video memorializing influential people who have died over the course of the year (see below). I was happy to see that they included Chuck Colson in this year’s list (at 4:18). The memorial designates him simply as “Special Counsel to the President.” Yet he was so much more than that.
Randy Alcorn has a fitting tribute to Colson today that is worth reading. It is brief, but it has an anecdote about Colson’s visit to the “untouchables” in India. What he did there shows that Colson’s life will forever be defined not by serving President Nixon, but by serving King Jesus. Read it here.
