On the Shoulders of Giants

We’ve lost an important voice. What now? From the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with the Point.

Isaac Newton once said, “If I’ve seen further than most, it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants.” We’ve lost a gianta giant of a leader, a giant of a voice, a giant of a story, a giant of truth, a giant of a man.

Chuck Colson deeply impacted my life, and anyone I know involved in worldview teaching and cultural engagementat least in a helpful waypoint to Chuck as an inspiration and influence. As younger voices like myself try to figure out how to think about the Gospel and culture in a faithful way, I know what he would say: all of our efforts, whether teaching or charity, must be undergirded by Truth and we must approach everyoneeven those with whom we disagreeas having dignity and value because they are made in the image of God.

Chuck Colson lived these truths in his life, from helping prisoners to fighting for the unborn and vulnerable to defending traditional marriage. I thank God for him. For, I’m John Stonestreet.
