Book Discussion: "Becoming Home" by Jedd Medefind

This is a reminder that there is still time to obtain and read "Becoming Home" and join our book discussion at the end of this month.  It's a quick but fact-filled and impactful read.  Order your book now on Amazon or Barna Group.  Also, check out the Becoming Home trailer with author Jedd Medefind.   We look forward to seeing you there!

God's Call to Care for the Orphan is for All of Us:
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 help.
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 the orphan—not because of a sense of duty, guilt or even idealism, but because we’ve first been loved by God.
We encourage you to bring a guest: a student, a friend, a co-worker or a spouse to learn more about this important issue.
