reckless abandon

This Sunday is 'Orphan Sunday' - a time when many churches around the country may talk about orphans and their needs. But will we be doing anything about it? I stumbled across this blog this morning and realized I couldn't say it any better. Instead of rewriting what Adeye has already so eloquently said, I ask you to read her post...and consider your response. Alek, Anya, Nick and Maddie are amazing kids - and there are thousands more just like them languishing in orphanages around the world. What can you do to help the ones we had to leave behind? - Tami
It’s Orphan Awareness Month. Again.

Another month set aside for the church to show orphan related videos, hear testimonies relevant to adoption and orphan care, and an opportunity to listen to sermons where orphans are [possibly] mentioned.
I must confess. Many times I ask myself, “What’s the point of it?” “Is having another time set aside to create an awareness of the orphan crisis even worth the effort?” Is it? Will it make a profound difference?
