In the early 1990s, Mike Gerson and I worked for Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN). Mike had worked previously for Chuck Colson and done a wonderful job of writing and research for him. This was, in part, how he obtained his position with Sen. Coats, an unashamed and thoughtful Evangelical.

Yesterday, Mike - now a columnist for the Washington Post - wrote a lovely column about Mr. Colson that better captures the man than anything I've read. You can read it here.
