Passionately stressing the value of human life in all stages and underscoring how the love of God can even be seen when the dignity of life is not respected, Bishop Joseph E. Strickland served as the keynote speaker at the first East Texas Sanctity of Life Banquet on Oct. 12 at the Holiday Inn in Tyler.
Almost 300 people of all faith traditions from across East Texas attended the event. State Representative Matt Schaefer of Tyler introduced Bishop Strickland.
