This is an Amazing Story of God’s Grace.
Chris Brown grew up while his father was on death row. Chris shares his thoughts of being 6 years old through young adulthood and how his relationship with his father grew. At 22 he then experienced the state of Alabama executing his father, Gary Brown on April 24, 2003.
In this story of God’s Amazing Grace, not only does his father Gary, becomes a born-again Christian while in prison, he also feels the call of God to minister to the other men on death row. His father’s message was “God’s Love, Grace and Forgiveness.” His father’s ministry affected the lives of not only prisoners, but guards, chaplains, family members, visitors and all those within the sound of his voice or pen.
God’s Grace did not stop with Gary, but Chris also got a huge dose of God’s Amazing Grace. Chris’ story is a miracle in itself. Chris’ ministry to the men in white continues what his father set out to do many years ago.
I have long been convinced that the answer is love and compassion for all of humanity. If you have love and compassion for all of humanity, you will not want to see anybody put into the death chamber and their life taken from them. It’s impossible!
Every Christian should hear Chris’ healing story. He is truly a Child of God’s Grace.
We are more than the worst thing we have ever done.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
