A Letter from John Stonestreet

No matter how much we think we know, God’s story of redemption is always bigger than we think or imagine. At the same time, many Christians today struggle to think like Christians, especially in the wake of a constantly and dramatically changing culture, because their view of Christianity is too small.

Dear Friend,

No matter how much we think we know, God’s story of redemption is always bigger than we think or imagine. At the same time, many Christians today struggle to think like Christians, especially in the wake of a constantly and dramatically changing culture, because their view of Christianity is too small.

Christian truth is personal, but it is not private. Christianity offers, as Chuck Colson often said, an explanation of all reality. Even more, Christianity offers the true story of this world and ourselves, a solid grounding for truth, identity, and morality. At the same time, a Christian worldview provides an adequate framework for our hardest questions and our smallest (and biggest) moments. It is, as many have pointed out, enough to captivate the new Christian or the expert theologian, and to unveil for both wonders that are new every morning.

God’s people need that framework. With it, we can explain and interpret reality, and better love God and our neighbors.

To be clear, the Christian worldview is not a few extra facts, a list of answers, or a sideshow for only those people interested in that sort of thing. It’s nothing less than a full vision of the Kingdom of God and an invitation to step deeper into it.

The mission and work of the Colson Center hinges on the belief that every Christian can live like one, with a worldview big enough for the world.

In these pages, we attempt to describe this vision for the future of the Church, and how God has equipped and called this organization to pursue that vision. Along the way, you will meet some of the incredible people God has brought together at the Colson Center, and see what is possible when we join God’s redemptive work in the world.

I hope what God is doing through the Colson Center encourages and inspires you. Please consider how you might join us in the next chapter of a bold endeavor. It is an honor to work for the Kingdom alongside you.

Blessings,

John Stonestreet
President of the Colson Center
