Today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal includes an article on adoption by Naomi Schaefer Riley that features our own Dr. Russell Moore.Mohler's "further thoughts" refers to an article he posted early this morning: "The Culture of the Congregation -- Celebrating Adoption."
An excerpt from the article:
Russell Moore, the dean of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., is the author of a forthcoming book called “Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches.” A few years ago, Mr. Moore and his wife adopted two boys from Russia, and he notes that his church has posted a large map showing which countries member families have adopted children from. “In any given church,” he notes, “you rarely see only one family who has adopted. . . . It becomes part of the culture of the congregation.”
Of course, we not only know Dr. Moore as an advocate for adoption, but we see in his family — and in so many others no this campus — all the evidence we need concerning the grace of adoption.
I offer further thoughts here.
