The Hard Work of Being Pro-Life

I have said before that pro-life Christians must move beyond the sandwich board, candidate-driven mentality and be willing to do the hard work that our faith demands. Peachtree Presbyterian in my hometown of Atlanta is a perfect example. Their pastor has announced that they will accept any unwanted babies that the community brings them. Working with Bethany Christian Services, the nation's largest adoption agency, Peacthree Pres will care for these newborns and find them loving homes. Want an example of what it means to be a pro-life Christian in the 21st Century? Here you go.

That's a great step for the church....

I agree - pro-lifers need to step up to the plate and embrace life at all costs....even when it means we must make a sacrifice ourselves.

Now, all we have to do is get the government to get out of the way to allow the church to do what we are called to do....

I also agree with the pastor - nutshell - step up, do what needs to be done, and deal with the "legal, psychological, and other" ramifications as needed - but we don't need to address them upfront for everyone to hear -

If God calls the church to do something - we need to do it in faith that He will be faithful to finish that which He started.

I hope that other churches begin to seek people who can care for children. The foster care system also needs so many people to be willing to take care of kids that have been abandonned.
