About a minute into the greatest sermon ever preached Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world. I know, big responsibility is placed on us in that moment. I think that a way for our churches to be the light of the world is by embracing the ministry of adoption and foster care.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
Watch as Dr. Purvis talks about what is needed to create a healthy adoption culture in your church.
