As you may now be aware, there were changes to the Canada Summer Jobs Grants program that have been problematic for churches and Christian charities that receive funding to assist them in hiring summer students for various programs and ministries. As with any conflict, there is the potential to respond in anger or fear and do no favours to the reputation of the Church or its people. (Panicked rage never brings glory to God.) However, there is also the potential to respond to injustice with grace and love—voicing concerns firmly, but respectfully, and remembering both the love and the holiness of God.
Pastor Bob Davies of Kanata Baptist Church did just that. We hope you will be encouraged by their response and consider drafting your own.
