Tweets that get me *Warning: radical orphan advocate post*

So I hopped onto twitter this afternoon to tweet about a free giveaway I'm trying to win... and I saw a re-tweet of this guy Johnny Carr by a friend of mine. Ooooh my gosh this guy gets it like few people do. I just had to steal a few of his tweets. I feel like saying things like this, but he actually did.

Things don't have to have a gray area. Lets just call it black and white like it really is because the truth is, while The Church waits for "The right time" kids are being transfered to institutions, aging out of orphanages to a life on the street, and dying from neglect. I read a post tonight by a sweet lady who held a baby in an orphanage 2 days ago only to find when she went back today, that the baby had died.

I dream of a day when all Christians get it like this guy.




church budget time: new carpet or help an orphan get adopted into a family? easy answer. why didn't I know this before? #fb


culture of #adoption = pastor saying FROM THE PULPIT "if you adopt, we will help, encourage, baby sit, sacrifice, etc..."

when you give money to help an #adoption, you aren't helping a family get a child, you are helping a child get a family. #fb


I'm tired of hypocrisy. everyone should not adopt, but every pastor should lead their church to have a culture of adoption #fb


We Christians claim 2b pro-family. 116,000 kids n foster care wait 2b adopted. actions speak louder than words #adoption #fb





*Disclaimer: whenever I talk about "The church" or "church" I am referring to the church as the entire body of believers, not a specific location*

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
