Orphan Sunday

The first Sunday of November is Orphan Sunday. It is the annual day across the nation when church families stop to recognize the needs of orphans around the world for someone to notice them.
Today is the day when we take a stand to recognize what God has done for us and what we can do for his other children around the globe. 

Today in our church service they showed this beautiful video recognizing a family that has a beautiful vision and a beautiful way to show God's love:




We adopt because God first adopted us. No, not all believers are called to adopt. But what if at least a small percentage of us did something about the orphan crisis around our globe? What if we took the stance that Christ took on our lives, to rescue us from our affliction, and did the same for others?


The picture below took my breath when I read it earlier today... But isn't it the truth?


"When God set out to redeem us, it killed him"




Tonight, I have no great vision for where this post should go. Nor do I wish to write a lot. I just wanted to share with you these pieces of media that touched my heart today.

I'll be writing soon on 'Beyond Orphan Sunday', because truly there's so much more to focus on with orphans and adoptions than just one day a year....
