About 100 religion reporters are flying into Durham, NC this week for the Religion Newswriters Association’s annual conference. On Friday at 3:30 p.m. Russell Moore, Jodi Jackson Tucker (the international director of Orphan Sunday) and I will sit on a panel about Evangelicals and the Orphan-Care Movement. Each of us will be given 10 minutes to tell our story about caring for orphans, how it relates to our faith, and what we see as the movement’s next steps. Once the three of us have finish sharing, the floor will be opened up for questions.
Some of the country’s leading religion reporters will be in the audience, including Laurie Goodstein of The New York Times, Cathy Lynn Grossman of USA Today and J.D. Kaleem of The Huffington Post. The panel’s moderator is Julia Duin, an adoptive mom, a religion reporter formerly with The Washington Times, and a frequent contributor to Christianity Today.
Would you please pray for us as we prepare and present? God is clearly at work within the Church to mobilize Christians to care for orphans. Our desire as panelists is to represent well what God is graciously doing through the good news of the Gospel within the evangelical orphan care movement.
