Season 3 of The Iowa Journal is in the books and on-the-air. Now, it is online. Forgiveness was our topic.
Here’s your links page.
The entire show lives here.
The show is in several parts.
The first part includes a set up piece with Joan Becker, Simon Estes and Mary Hayes Grieco. The features look at each of their stories of forgiveness and how it has influenced their lives. The story link is here.
I wrote a lot about their stories in this preview post.
Joan Becker’s son, Mark shot and killed beloved Aplington-Parkersburg High School Football coach Ed Thomas. Here is an extended interview with Joan. It runs about 12 minutes.
This is her story in her own words as told to producer Nancy Heather Brown of Iowa Public Television.
Also in his own words is world-renowned opera singer Simon Estes. He’s travelled the world, performing on stages from Cape Town to Paris to New York City. But, a story early in his life shaped him in many ways. Here’s Simon’s full story of forgiveness. It involves the death of his father and racism.
Bestselling author Gail Sheehy recently spoke in Des Moines as part of the DMPL’s Avid series. She is talking about caring for your aging family members, mostly talking about caring for your parents. Click the word ‘here‘ for the story.
Again, here’s the link to the full show. Original air date was May 27, 2010. This is the link to watch the following people appear on The Iowa Journal: Simon Estes, Joan Becker, Pastor Brad Zinnecker, Mary Hayes Grieco, Sandy Hoenig, and Dr. Nathaniel G. Wade. Plus Gail Sheehy.
We took a picture after the show of the crew to mark the end of the season. I’ll write more about this group later, but here’s the picture of some of the people who were proud to bring you The Iowa Journal.
