Overview of the Podcast
Hello, I’m Ken Root,
It is mid January, legislatures are in session in Washington, D.C. and in Des Moines. There is sorrow as we move through this month toward the anniversary of legalized abortion in its 41st year, but there is always hope. The human spirit rises up in many ways.
Pro Life people stand up for their beliefs and many march, some in Washington, some in our state Capitols.
They strengthen their resolve and return to their lives.
As Knights we have similar hope for the future but we are very active in eliminating the need for abortion. We fund pro-life clinics across the state and engage in many activities that we hope will change the culture of death to a culture of life.
In our ranks of Iowa Knights, Dan Werner has stepped down from his state deputy post to deal with health issues. Our prayers to him and his family.
We have no void of leadership as Mike Gaspers, Past State Deputy and founder of this show has been appointed to serve through July 1 of this year.
Ken Root spoke to Mike about his activities and the priorities of Knights in the months ahead.
Mike Gaspers talks with Dick Makinster, PSD, FDM and current Birthright Chairman about his Birthright and overall pro-life involvement over the years.
Mike has been attending district meetings across the state. He caught up with Bob Kesterson FS from Harlan in western Iowa.
Mike also caught up with Clarence Siepker Grand Knight from Laurens after he had listened to information given at a district meeting in Storm Lake.
Knights have a program to introduce young men to our work while they are in high school. They are called Squires. Mike spoke with Brandon Pourier, field agent who is helping to expand the program.
Thank you to everyone for your contribution to our program this week. Knight Life is produced by the Iowa Knights of Columbus. If our message has touched you and you would like to focus your life and do good works, join us.
Prayers to our former State Deputy Dan Werner. Strength to our acting leader Mike Gaspers.
