My friend Graham tipped me off this week that veteran Christian musician, author and CCM columnist John Fischer launched a new blog recently called The Catch – Connecting Life to Faith.
In the time it took me to read just a half dozen posts, I knew I had found the theme for today’s blog here at Thinking Out Loud: Adoption. Not spiritual adoption — the way God adopts us into His family — although that’s important. But the adoption of children.
This is a big theme right now in a lot of churches. At North Point in Atlanta, Andy Stanley is encouraging church families to be at the forefront of program like Foster Parents and to consider adoption.
In the case of John Fischer’s story though; instead of reading his recent post as I did, and then linking back, I want to walk you through this as a “before and after” journey. No cheating.
But you have to promise to actually click on the links, okay? You won’t regret taking a few minutes to read this.
Don’t even think about reading this sentence if you didn’t read the before story. I can’t include a quotation from it ’cause you need to read it all.
Isn’t that awesome?
