On May 9, friends and family of Chuck Colson gathered at First Baptist Church in Naples, Florida – Chuck’s home congregation – to remember the Prison Fellowship founder, and to reflect on his life and his commitment to serving prisoners and their families.
At the memorial, Prison Fellowship Ministries CEO Jim Liske reflected on Chuck’s last public appearance. “He had this look of great pleasure on his face as if God was giving him a sense that the movement would live on. That was the last time we publicly heard Chuck’s voice.”
The Naples Daily News has a nice article on the memorial, including a number of pictures from the service.
A public memorial service for Chuck will be held on Wednesday, May 16, at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. Information on the service – including a live webcast of the events – is available on the National Cathedral website.
