"How Long Have You Been a Black Quarterback?"

Doug Williams got to field that question when he led the Washington Redskins to the Super Bowl.

Sometimes, the questions we ask are more offensive than statements we may make. The question reveals a thought process that is just assumed, and can be painful.

Justin Taylor writes a good article about the questions people ask adoptive parents that is a must read for anyone who knows an adoptive parent.

It also caused me to wonder: Why aren't Christians the most passionate people about adoption? It's our opportunity to flesh out an example of one of the most beautiful doctrines in Scripture.

    Our church family is big on adoption. In our church of about a hundred people we have six kids that have been adopted from other countries. I think its 1 from Viet Nam, 2 from Cambodia and 3 from Russia. Everytime I do a child dedication for one of them I get choked up because with God we are all adopted children. There are so many beautiful parallels between how international adoptions occur and how God chooses to love us and redeem us at great cost. I agree with you that christians ought to be passionate about adoption
