Adopted for Life

At Highview, one of the convictions our church is becoming known for is a passionate desire for life.  A clear demonstration of this fact can be seen in the nearly 100 children that have been adopted at Highview in the last few years through our adoption program.  Adoption has become a positive epidemic in our church culture, with more and more couples beginning to welcome abused and neglected orphans both locally and all over the world into their families.  Evangelical churches, after all, should be known as lighthouses for adoption issues in our culture since a passion for Jesus should lead us towards a view of children as a blessing and not as a burden.
Dr. Russell Moore, one our preaching pastors, has recently released an excerpt from his upcoming book called Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches (due out in May 2009).  I would highly commend this book as a resource for families considering adoption (and for those who have never considered adoption as a gospel-critical issue).  Also, any churches interested in developing an adoption ministry can check out Highview’s Adoption page.

Dr. Moore also preached an incredible sermon on this issue at Highview this past Sunday.
