2013 T4A National Conference
The Story That Changes Everything
FRI 10/4/13 to 10/5/13
Six rich general sessions. Fifty tool-gathering workshops. ONE breathtaking Story.
According to Christianity Today and national orphan care leaders like Jedd Medefind, Together for Adoption is the ‚Äútheological engine‚ÄĚ of the evangelical orphan care and adoption movement.
Together for Adoption has consistently led the way in telling God‚Äôs story of Adoption for a broken world. While lowercase ‚Äúadoption‚ÄĚ refers to the practice of families adopting children, uppercase ‚ÄúAdoption‚ÄĚ refers to God‚Äôs mission of Adoption within Story of Redemption ‚Äúto unite all things in [Jesus Christ], things in heaven and things on earth‚ÄĚ (Ephesians 1:5, 10). In Ephesians 1:3-10, Adoption begins the grand Story of redemption that climaxes with renewal of all things in Jesus (also see Romans 8:18-23)!
As we at Together for Adoption like to put it: ‚ÄúAdoption is God‚Äôs redemptive activity within the world to reconcile, restore, and renew all creation.‚ÄĚ God‚Äôs Story of Adoption is an opportunity for God‚Äôs people to live intentionally within the Story He‚Äôs writing, the climax of which is the Day He makes all things new. This is the Story that changes everything‚ÄĒfor us and the fatherless.
