Life of integrity
|by Gina Dalfonzo|
Is there anyone left in the public arena who has true integrity? Sometimes it's tempting to believe there isn't. But Chuck Colson knows better:
Seven months into my prison term, I was facing some family crises that were terrible. Al [Quie] called me and told me about a law that might allow him to serve out the rest of my sentence. Al said he was going to see President Ford the next day and ask him, if he, Al, could serve the rest of my prison sentence. I was speechless.
If a senior Congressman would lay his life down for one of most reviled men in the country, then I knew that Jesus had to be exactly who He says He is. That moment affirmed my faith like no other. Though Al never had to follow through—because a couple of days later I was released from prison—the lesson never left me.
We so desperately need examples like Al Quie. I so hope that you, your friends, and your family will read Riding into the Sunrise and get to know a man who has lived the most consistent life of integrity of anyone I’ve ever met.
