Thursday, Dec. 13

Sometime ago the Board of Supervisors allocated nearly $1 million to 10 parochial schools around the Des Moines metro. The reaction from some were negative, biting and fierce. Some even called for the resignation of my colleagues and me. The editorial board of the local newspaper even demanded the Catholic Dioceses return the funds. But why? People seem to have the argument that we violated the separation of church and state. But did we? Can people serve only God or Caesar? Or should people even be forced to make that decision? Join me for Leading With Power to learn more.

“It is not the critic who counts;

not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again… who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
