In June, as part of my work with LifeWay, I went to the SBC convention in Orlando. Although I wasn’t fortunate enough to sit in the Pastor’s conference, I did hear about an exciting outcome that perked my interest. Not only did Russell Moore speak specifically on the topic of adoption, but the SBC also announced the launch of The Adoption Fund for Ministers, which will financially assist ministers in the adoption process, starting in 2011. What a way to put our money where our mouth is.
Last night (four months later) I watched a few messages from the Pastors Conference and was encouraged in many ways, in a time that seems so easy to not be.
To see all the messages from the Pastors Conference, click here. I haven’t watched them all, but go ahead and do yourself a favor by watching parts 16 (Russell Moore on adoption), 17 (Prayer for Adoptive Families), and 18 (Francis Chan). I tried to embed these but WordPress doesn’t seem to work with Mediasuite.
