It was about two years ago that I attended a worldview conference – this one at Hannibal-LaGrange University in Mark Twain’s Hannibal, Mo, … sponsored by the 1,900 churches of the Missouri Baptist Convention. Constitutional law professor and expert in religious liberty, Josh Hawley, was a key leader and spokesman.
Privately I shared with him words to the effect that “I hope you become a candidate for public office. You represent the kind of integrity and worldview that we so desperately need in our country!”
Now Josh Hawley is a candidate for Attorney General of the state of Missouri.
From small town Missouri, Lexington, he has done well … exceedingly well … in everything he has attempted. His brilliance and application of discipline come through “loud and clear.” Read for yourself a summary of his impressive biography by clicking on https://joshhawley.com/meet-josh-hawley/ … wherein you can see a picture of Josh, his wife, and their two children.
When a clerk for the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Josh met his wife who was also a clerk for the Chief Justice. They both now teach at the University of Missouri Law School. (He has taken a leave of absence for the campaign efforts.)
In this brief radio conversation, you will love his story of the time when, as a little boy, he crawled into his father’s lap. He remembers his father’s tenderness in telling Josh of the love that Jesus has for him … and how Jesus had died for his sin … and arose from the dead. In that early boyhood experience, Josh Hawley, with warm emotion, recalls how he prayed, asking Jesus to come into his life and be his Savior!
The results one can see today.
