Presidential Citizens Medal for Chuck Colson

Chuck_colson Our fearless leader was presented with the Presidential Citizens Medal by George W. Bush today, "for his good heart and his compassionate efforts to renew a spirit of purpose in the lives of countless individuals." More information about the award is here. (Dr. Robby George, a friend of this ministry, also received a medal.)

A statement from PFM includes the following quotes from Chuck:

“Whatever good I may have done is because God saw fit to reach into the depths of Watergate and convert a broken sinner,” said Colson. “Everything that has been accomplished these past 35 years has been by God’s grace and sovereign design.”

In responding to the award, Colson directed the praise and accolades back toward the ministry of Prison Fellowship, the ministry he founded in 1976.

“I do not treat this medal as mine,” he said. “It is, like in the military, a unit citation. The staff of Prison Fellowship, the thousands of volunteers and the hundreds of thousands of donors have made this possible. So while I am overwhelmed in gratitude to God, I am grateful to all those associated in this movement called Prison Fellowship.”

Congratulations, Chuck!
