Church of Prayer or Church of Prey?

St. Petersburg, Florida - "A church is a house of prayer, but a volunteer at Northside Baptist may have made it a house of prey...St. Petersburg police arrested Stephen Greeley, 40, Wednesday morning. They say he sexually molested a young boy who he met at the church. He was a friend of the victim's parents."

Pastor Timothy Kroll says, the church takes steps to protect children. They do background checks, all classrooms have windows and there's a "two adults rule" for those working with kids. "We say the safety of children is one of our top priorities," says Kroll."

I was grateful to read that this church follows two of my rules for children's programs. They do background checks and have a two person rule for children. Look for future posts to talk more about these principles.
