A Testimony of Love7 August 2008 · Filed in Personal
Over three years ago, I blogged about Shaohannah’s Hope, a charity founded by Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth Chapman. Shaohannah’s Hope is dedicated to helping further the love of Christ through the ministry of adoption.
As most everyone knows, the Chapman family recently suffered a tragic loss. Yet, even after that tragic loss, Steven Curtis Chapman, his wife, and their family still trust in God and still believe in adoption. Most recently, he penned this commentary at CNN, in which he says:
If only 7 percent of the 2 billion Christians in the world would care for a single orphan in distress, there would effectively be no more orphans. If everybody would be willing to simply do something to care for one of these precious treasures, I think we would be amazed by just how much we could change the world.
My wife and I have often talked of adoption. Is it time now for us (not just my wife and me, but all of us), as Christians, to show our own testimony of love?Tags: Christianity · Personal Previous Post: A Few SRM Discussion Points Next Post: Liveblogging at VMworld 2008
