Care for the orphan

My concordance tells me that there are 55 references to the word ‘orphan’ in the Bible. The overwhelming sense of these verses is that the Bible demands care for the orphan and in fact the very embodiment of care amongst the people of God  is demonstrated in care for the orphan. And, if we were in danger of failing to grasp the point, the Bible repeatedly threatens judgement on any who would fail to care for the orphan. This truly demonstrates something of the heart of God.
We are delighted that this Sunday Phil Green, CEO of ‘Home for Good’ will be sharing their work to find a stable and loving home for every child who needs one. 
Sunday evening we shall be sharing communion and considering the ruthless elimination of hurry from our lives.
