Orphan Sunday

"Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings."
Helen Keller

There are over 132 million orphans worldwide, according to UNICEF.  Over 95% of those are over the age of 5.  

As Christians, all of us are not called to adopt, but we are all called to take care of the orphans. Each Christian should be asking themselves, "What am I doing to defend the cause of the fatherless?"

There are many ways: prayer, foster care, adoption, supporting organizations like Show Hope, donate to the adoption funds of people you know who are adopting, or be an advocate for adoption and foster care.  The perfect time to be the latter is on Sunday, November 4th.  This is a day that is celebrated in churches around the world.  

Be a voice for the voiceless.
