A story I heard today…

We had coffee today with a man (and his brother) who was sent to prison (and spent 9 years there) for a crime he says he did not commit. He has now been out of prison for 9 years. While awaiting trial in prison he met a mutual friend Colin Bompas who all those years back attended all of his court appearances, visited him, encouraged him, stood by him, discipled him, and has remained close friends to him all these years. This man regards Colin as a father to him. I was so encouraged listening to his story of Colin’s long term faithful commitment to Christ. The man also shared he how has come to accept the gross injustice against him, learned from it and integrated it into his own story. There were so many life lessons in the story. Thank you Colin for suggesting we meet  #NoBitterness #RacialReconciliation #TrueChristianity#Perserverance #Forgiveness #Faithfullness
