Orphan Sunday

November is national adoption month, and today is Orphan Sunday. It is a day set aside for all of us to consider the plight of the orphan.

This was posted on the Orphan Sunday website today:
On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless… to care for the child that has no family… to visit orphans in their distress.

From many sources, one voice. Hundreds of events across America and beyond, all sharing a single goal: that God’s great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well.

Each as they are led. Sermons and small groups, concerts and prayer gatherings—each rousing believers with God’s call to care for the orphan… and what we can do in response.

November 8, 2009. Orphan Sunday is your opportunity to rouse church, community and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan.

Today there is a live broadcast (click here to watch it) Spread the word! Stephen Curtis Chapman, Geoff Moore, and the Children of the World Choir will be performing, and there will be many speakers. It is sure to be informative and convicting!
