When Nixon aide Chuck Colson was convicted of Watergate-related crimes, his family was already in crisis, and Colson grieved over being removed from them to serve prison time. Colson had recently become a Christian, and was part of a group of other government officials who followed Christ. Minnesota Governor Al Quie offered to serve Colson’s time in prison.

He became our substitute and took on our sentence.
