Faith@Work With Jonathan Aitken. “From Power To Prison To Peace.”
One of the unspoken fears of successful people is to lose everything: reputation, wealth, work, family and friends. Jonathan Aitken’s political career came to a crashing end when he lied on oath in a libel action and served a seven month prison sentence in 1999. Not only did he lose his reputation, work and family but there was little public sympathy for a politician who was getting what he deserved.
How would we cope if we hit rock bottom and lost everything because of our wrong decisions?
In this open and candid talk Jonathan will share the lessons he’s learned from his very public fall from power. We’ll hear about his experience in prison and how it profoundly changed him as he discovered the forgiveness of God and the reality of a fresh start in life.
