An Easter Reflection

Andy Corley
Prison Fellowship International President and CEO

Walking is a slow and intentional activity. We walk at approximately the same speed as our heartbeat.

Jesus never moved at any other pace so far as we are told. He walked with his disciples, at the pace of being known and knowing them. Running is great, but you don’t encounter others at that pace.

Some may point out that walking occurs at the same speed as thought. Imagine that…the creator of the universe walked slowly and intentionally towards his own death propelled by purpose and love.


Plenty of time to think, plenty of time to refuse and turn away from his mission, plenty of time to indulge in fear and plenty of time to contemplate the prize. Which is us, all of us. The mystery and the wonder dawns on us slowly and results in praise and adoration.

Thank you, Lord, for the cross.

And thank you for being part of this ministry, walking alongside those in prison and their families around the world. Together, we are growing and uniting as a body of believers, following the path forged by the footsteps of our Savior.

Children of prisoners from across the world who are enrolled in The Child’s Journey helped create this video of reflection and hope for this Easter season. I encourage you to take a few moments to watch it, knowing that your heart will be blessed by this powerful message.


Blessed Easter to you all,

Andy Corley
