International Fellowship of Christians and Jews

R.I.P Charles Colson, 1931-2012

Upon hearing of the death of Charles Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship and longtime friend of The Fellowship, Rabbi Eckstein issued this statement:

I am saddened to learn here in Jersualem of Chuck Colson’s passing.  I have admired Chuck and I have felt very close to him as he served God so faithfully.

Chuck was a friend to me and to our ministry of reconciliation between Christians and Jews, including his early appearances on our television specials. This was characteristic of this great man: with firm and steadfast convictions of his evangelical Christian faith he also reached out to pursue common good, with Roman Catholics in standing against secularism, and in our case to aid Jews in the Diaspora to return to the Holy Land.

To his family, his ministry partners, and all who mourn his loss, I pray for shalom, peace.

Please pray that the Colson family will be comforted in their time of mourning.
