Legal Grounds | Dr. Richard Mouw
Legal Grounds | Conversations on Life, Leadership & Law
When I got ready for this week’s discussion, one thing kept poking at my mind: The Establishment Clause. I’m sure many of you remember it from your civics lessons."Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."And yet, my guest this week has made it his life’s work to understand the relationship between the powers that be & the powers above. Dr. Richard Mouw is a political philosopher & theologian who has published over 20 books & whose work I have been fortunate enough to read in The Dallas Morning News. Dr. Mouw is currently a senior research fellow at the Henry Institute for the Study of Religion and Politics at Calvin College. He has been teaching on these subjects since 1968, so it’s safe to say he holds a long-view of history.Even more astonishing, our conversation was recorded last December, prior the chaos we witnessed as a country at the beginning of the year. We discuss the role of Religion in our current political climate, the dire need for common ground & how to better go about the conversations that make ALL of us a little uncomfortable. Enjoy the show!
