Colson Associates Expect His Imminent Death
"It is with a heavy, but hopeful heart that I share with you that it appears our friend, brother and founder will soon be home with the Lord," said Jim Liske, CEO of Prison Fellowship Ministries, in a statement.
Jim Liske, CEO of Prison Fellowship Ministries, gave the following update Wednesday to the staff and supporters of Prison Fellowship, Justice Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview:
It is with a heavy, but hopeful heart that I share with you that it appears our friend, brother and founder will soon be home with the Lord. Chuck's condition took a decided turn yesterday, and the doctors advised Patty and the family to gather by his bedside.
As you know, Chuck underwent surgery more than two weeks ago to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain. And while we had seen some hopeful signs for Chuck's recovery - including his ability to talk happily with Patty and the kids - it seems that God may be calling him home.
I cannot tell you how much your prayers, cards and well-wishes have meant to Patty and the family - and to Chuck. He loves you all deeply, and I know his greatest desire beyond seeing Jesus is that the work he and all of us have been called to will continue. As Chuck would say, 'Remain at your posts and do your duty - for the glory of God and His kingdom.'
As soon as we have more information, I will be sure to let you know. And as always, keep praying for Chuck and Patty."

This is really sad news. God bless him and his family. He’s a true Christian warrior.
dear Jesus, please give this good and great man some more days of service here with us. but if that is not your will, we know that you will welcome him home with open arms, and a “well done good and faithful servant”.
But we could sure use him here a bit longer, dear Lord.
...And thanks for doing your best to be honest.
Very sad news...God bless you, Chuck.
This Roman Catholic will miss the genuine Christian leadership provided by Charles Colson. May he be welcomed into heaven by the God he loved so deeply and loyally.
