As Alabama Baptists welcome the overturn of Roe v. Wade, let us be good stewards of our influence in responding with grace, civility and concerted prayer for all.
What we have been praying and working for has now become a reality and is certainly a cause for celebration. It is also a call for us to continue to be salt and light in a culture that does not understand or care to understand our convictions.
We rejoice knowing that the overturn of Roe v. Wade has finally happened after almost 50 years. We know the lives of unborn children are precious in God’s sight. Let us also realize that we have much more work to be done and have entered into a new era of ministry in protection of and support of preborn life.
