God's Call to Care for the Orphan is for All of Us
Becoming Home is for anyone who has wrestled with how to address the orphan crisis. Caring for orphans makes grace touchable. When Christians choose to adopt, foster, mentor, or support care for orphans around the globe, it reveals God's true character to the world like nothing else we can do. Becoming Home unpacks specific steps everyone can take to care for orphans in distress. Some of these steps are 'big' choices like fostering or adopting; some are simpler choices like supporting work abroad or mentoring a foster youth. But all are ways we can practically show love to orphans - not because of a sense of duty, guilt, or even idealism, but because we've first been loved by God.
Becoming Home is part of the FRAMES series - short yet meaningful reads on the top issues facing us in today's complex culture. It's a new kind of book brought to you by Barna Group, to help you read less, and know more.
Jedd Medefind serves as president of the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), which unites more than 140 respected Christian organizations to labor together and equip Christians for effective adoption, foster care and global orphan care ministry. Previously, Jedd led the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, which, as the Harvard Political Review describes, ""fundamentally changed the governments strategy for improving the lives of the downtrodden." He's written several books, including Upended: How Following Jesus Remakes Your Words and World (Passio, 2012). Jedd and his wife, Rachel, love the great outdoors and live in California with their five children.
