Host:Dr. James Dobson
On today’s edition of Family Talk, former U.S. Congressman and Dobson Institute advisory board member Bob McEwen declares that there were two great events in world history. First, Jesus Christ made the ultimate sacrifice by dying on the cross for our sins. And second, on July 4, 1776, America was born as an independent nation. Despite the obvious lines of division that exist in our country today, we must remain faithful to the principles that built this great nation. It was founded in liberty and has become a lighthouse to the world for the gospel and for truth.
Bob McEwen is executive director of the Council for National Policy. He was elected to represent Ohio for six terms in the U.S House of Representatives, beginning in 1980. Prior to his congressional service, he operated a successful Ohio real estate and development firm and served three terms in the Ohio General Assembly as the Senior Republican on the financial institutions and insurance committee. During his congressional service, Bob served as a special presidential envoy for both Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, and as a U.S Representative to the European Parliament. He was appointed by his colleagues to two of the most coveted positions in the U.S Congress: the Select Committee on Intelligence, which oversees all our nation’s secrets, and the House Committee on Rules, which has jurisdiction over all legislation in the Congress. Bob was also appointed to the 1776 Commission by President Trump. Bob and his wife, Liz, have four children and nine grandchildren.
