Honoring the Hawleys

A 70th wedding anniversary is a rarity.  I’ll certainly never have one, and I’ve never personally known a couple who celebrated one.

Julia and Monroe Hawley are celebrating theirs today — August 22, 2015.

The Hawleys have spread much good influence through the years, particularly in the North Central states, according to the Christian Chronicle’s August edition.  I don’t know the couple personally, but I do have one of Monroe’s books, Redigging the Wells, in which he attempts to call those in the American Restoration Movement churches back to restoration ideals.

Anyone who does that type of thing, while coming to be known for having an “irenic spirit” and having a marriage that lasts 70 years, is worth of honor.  And so I honor them here today.

    Mailed Monroe and Julia a letter last week–dear friends of my parents from WI days in the 50’s and 60’s. Top shelf folks!
