The long-awaited unveiling of Voiceless For the Voiceless (V4V) is nearly upon us! Our crash course in all things V4V is coming this Friday. We will cast the vision, you will receive your V4V kit, and will learn everything you need to know in order to give TD the best chance at changing lives for good, including your own. Make plans to join us!
In addition, we will be in small groups to follow-up on last week’s message,”The Power of Habit.” It’s a key message that will need to be understood and implemented well if you are going to experience a successful rebuild of your life in Christ.
If I had to choose a “verse of the year” for me, it’s a no-brainer. Hands down it’s James 1:27:
“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.”
This Christmas season has been a daily deluge of that for me and my family as we work through the extremely extensive adoption process. Being buried in paperwork can sometimes obscure the vision of what it is we’re trying to do.
Perhaps that’s why I found myself tearing up in my car when I listened to “All I Want For Christmas” by 5-time Grammy Award winner, Steven Curtis Chapman, a couple of weeks ago. It was a great reminder of why God gave His church the James 1:27 command and who it is we are to be helping in His Name.
I hope you’ll listen to the lyrics and begin praying for the orphaned children with special needs in China that we’ll be seeking to help during the upcoming Voiceless for the Voiceless (V4V) campaign that TD will be engaging in, in the near future. Enjoy! – Arthur
