Former U.S. Senator John Danforth is coming to Salina to stand up for children’s programs and talk about his new book, “The Relevance of Religion: How Faithful People Can Change Politics.”
Senator Danforth joined in on the KSAL Morning News Thursday and says the point of the book is to encourage more people of faith to participate in the political process.
“If you leave politics to the people who are the most enraged, or the hottest voices then you have the situation we have right now,” said the former U.S.Senator from Missouri.
“We’ve got to understand that compromise is necessary and as Kennedy famously said in his inaugural speech you’ve got to be interested in the welfare of the country, not just how much we can grab for ourselves.”
Tickets are still available to attend a book signing event at the Salina Community Theatre on Tuesday, October 27th at 6pm.
Proceeds will benefit the mission and programs of Saint Francis Community Services.
Paid admission includes a copy of the book. A private reception is scheduled at 5:30pm followed by the community book signing event at 6pm.
