Who I am
My name is Tim Callis and I'm 54 years old. I have been incarcerated in the Colorado Department of Corrections for 35 years. In fact, since I was 12 years old I have been locked-up all but 2 years. The first 15 years of my time in prison I was involved with drugs and violence. Then, the impossible happened. In my life there was a miraculous invation of light into my darkness. The God of the universe came to live in me and began to change my heart and life. For the past 20 years since then I have been serving God's people in the Church in prison. I have done this through discipling, instructing, and mentoring men of faith who become warriors for God's army. I have madr many mistakes along the way but there is a hunger inside me to share what Jesus is doing in my life, here and now.
What is Flaming Arrows
In 2003 I preached a message in the Walsenburg Colorado Prison church and a visiting speaker followed me with a corresponding message. The message was based on the fact that the men were being set on fire with passion for the Lor'd Kingdom there in Walsenburg and were then being transfered to other prison facilities all over the state to light fires for the Kingdom's glory. Little did we know that the facility would be closed in 2008 and the fire that was started at Walsenburg is now ignited in every facility in Colorado. Thus, this blog has a purpose of kindling that same flame beyond the walls of prison.
