I hope that each of you will take the time to pray through this issue and seek God’s glory in your course of action. I will be the first to confess that I have been silent too long because I was afraid (see an excellent post by a fellow blogger, http://brokensilence.wordpress.com/2008/11/14/please-reconcile-the-fear-of-man/). But it is time to speak and to act.
Praying urgently for His will and glory,
