Trustees Take A Biblical Stand In Kentucky

This is a followup to my post from Saturday, November 2, regarding the Sunrise Children's Services (formerly the Kentucky Baptist Homes for Children) and their Director's proposal to change employment standards to allow for practicing homosexuals to serve on staff.  click here to see original post

The Sunrise Board of Trustees has voted to keep the hiring standards as they have always been.  While affirming that there is no one who is beyond the love of our God, and no one to whom we should not show Grace, as a former Kentucky Baptist pastor, I am thankful for the stand taken by the Trustees.  Those who serve the children of Kentucky through this long standing ministry of the Kentucky Baptist Cconvention
should certainly be held to the highest Biblical standards.

Here is a link to the Baptist Press article on the Trustee vote.  click here to view article

Since Sunrise presently receives over twenty five times more money from federal sources than it does from the parent organization, the Kentucky Baptist Convention, this decision may result in a radical reduction of funding.  We should continue to pray for this important ministry.  Pray that if the federal funding is taken away that the God who was able to serve more than 5,000 people with one little boy's lunch, will also show His power in this ministry.  May He honor the stand the Sunrise Trustees have taken for Biblical truth.

Little is much when God is in it.
