James 1:27 (New International Version)
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
LongHollow Church, a multi-site church in Tennessee, has decided on a Crazy Love fund-raising campaign that aims to, among other things, raise $200K for a Haiti orphanage, and $10K to create means for helping people adopt orphans (doesn't that sound backwards? – Shouldn't they spend MORE money on the means to make them ex-orphans?).
Also, the Catalyst Podcast is focusing on adoption, trying to get American churches to really pursue adoption of orphans – they're pushing Orphans and the Church, a Rick Warren/Saddleback effort. Here's an interview with Kay Warren talking about it. She discusses how she became passionate about it as she was researching how to help HIV victims in Africa. Really interesting.
