Orphan Sunday And Defending The Fatherless

In case you did not know, yesterday was Orphan Sunday.

Why Love Orphans? from Christian Alliance for Orphans on Vimeo.

Our church currently has about 12 couples either becoming foster parents, going through the adoption process, or have actually adopted already. A new website called Project Hope Speaks has been set up to share these stories and to affirm the biblical teaching on care for the orphan.

I think just as their is a need to defend the cause of the orphan outside the womb, I think there is a need to defend the orphan from those who want preemptively kill the orphan in the womb. May Christians defend orphans no matter what size they are.

"Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow." Isaiah 1:17
