How do we come alongside new foster families? How do we care for children in the system, even if we aren’t able to foster or adopt at this time? When we do foster and are able to adopt, how will we be equipped? What kinds of needs and difficulties do these kids face, and how can we actually come alongside them in a healthy way? How has God called us to actively seek justice and protect children in foster care?
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these.
Our hearts are stirred for children in foster care, but we don’t want to just jump uninformed from passion to action or we could do more harm than good. We want to engage our minds to learn about how we can use our hands to serve in a way that is healthy and honoring to each child and family.
Saturday, May 19, we will be hosting a luncheon to help us engage the foster care system in LA and learn more about how the gospel informs our call to care for the fatherless in LA.
