An amazing group of people passionate for those without a voice. Honored and humbled and thrilled that my co-author and I were invited to speak at this year’s Summit.
“JUSTICE AND MERCY FLOW FROM THE GOSPEL”
The Christian Alliance for Orphans’ annual Summit has become the national hub for what Christianity Today recently called, “the burgeoning Christian orphan care movement.” Summit VIII on May 3-4, 2012 at Saddleback Church in Southern California is expected to draw 1,800 to 2,000 pastors, grassroots advocates, organizational leaders and church ministry heads. Alongside more than eighty workshops, the unforgettable plenary sessions will include Francis Chan, Rick and Kay Warren, Crawford Lorritts, Dennis Rainey, Steven Curtis Chapman, and other global leaders. Summit inspires, equips and connects for adoption, foster care and global orphan ministry.
The workshop you’ll find us at is titled, “Loving all of our child: Why an adoptee’s story matters” – Heart work. It can be hard work, especially for an adoptee left to discover the hidden places of the heart alone. Come explore the fragile beginnings of an adoptee’s life, the impact relinquishment has on the human soul and your role in creating a path of trust, openness, and connectedness that will leave your child feeling wanted, cherished, and honored.
If you or someone in your life is an advocate for adoption and/or foster care, share this with them and consider joining thousands of others who work towards justice and mercy in this unique way.
