I’ve mentioned before on a couple of occasions that it seems advocacy or, more simply, “getting involved” has become a de-facto theme for this year. I seem to keep coming back to things encouraging us to get involved in the big issues of our day and making a difference.

A blog that consistently kicks me further in that direction is Rage Against the Minivan. A mother of four, two of whom are adopted, she does a great job of challenging her readers to get involved in orphan care. There are so many different levels of ways we can be involved in advocating or directly caring for children in tough situations. Check out a recent list of her suggestions at her post You Don’t Need to Adopt to Care for Orphans. I really appreciate the scope, thought and passion she puts into this information.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction…
