We recently signed on with CMG Booking’s speaker circuitÂ thinking, Who’ll ever hire us?!Â Less than a week later, Joel was requested to speak for the Legatus chapterÂ of the Quad Cities (Iowa/Illinois). That talk is tonight and its theme is, drum roll, please:
The bioethical dilemmas for Catholics under the new healthcare laws (i.e., Obamacare).Â
Whoa. Talk about an insanely complex topic. Or as Donald Trump would said, “It’s HUGE!”
Let me take this moment here on our digital plot of land to share how proud I am of Joel. I sat through his dress rehearsal last night, and Joel has pulled together an outstanding talk in one week’s time. It touches on biology, ethics, employment and insurance law, Church teaching, Church history, religious liberty, and more.
If you have a moment today, please whisper a prayer for Joel, specifically for clarity of mind, effectiveness of speech, and safe travels.Â I also pray for the men of the Quad Cities Legatus chapter, that they will be led to deeper contemplation about their role and responsibilities as Catholic businessmen in the public square.
And one last plug, if in need of a speaker on this topic, Joel just might fit the bill. Please keep him in mind.
