Stand Sunday is an initiative of Christian Alliance for Orphans to raise awareness about foster care and encourage the local church to be the solution to the foster care crisis in their community. Every November we partner with our local church to bring awareness of how to practically serve foster families in our county.
I AM CALLED TO DO SOMETHING
So often as Christians we feel like we can't serve until we feel called. At Compelled to Care we believe that everyone can - and is called - to do something to care for kids in foster care. We believe this because Jesus moved toward hard and broken situations and cared for the vulnerable. The bible says that there is "no greater religion than this than to care for orphans and widows in their distress." (James 1:27a) Orphans and widows represent the most vulnerable in a community. Therefore the question isn't if we're called. The question is are we going to follow Jesus and move toward hard and broken places? More specifically what are we going to do?
