The Stone-Campbell Movement's emphasis on welcoming all to the Lord’s table and the Disciples' historical concern for social justice have informed the public service career of Jess O. Hale, Jr., former senior legislative attorney for the Tennessee General Assembly and a former U.S. Senate legislative assistant. In reflecting on more than three decades of helping shape public policy, Hale credits Stone-Campbell ideals with nurturing his desire to address the needs of society's vulnerable, and he calls on Christians to witness to God’s kingdom by challenging the economic inequity, lack of healthcare, and racism that continue to afflict our communities.
