All In Conference

Earlier today, I attended a full-day conference in the West end of Ottawa. The “All In” Conference focused on creating a culture in our city for orphan care, fostering and adoption. I attended, with my wife, and we went to a breakout session on “Infertility and the Gospel,” as well as a session on “Loving Well in a Broken World.”

The highlight for me was learning about James 1:27, about caring for widows and orphans in their distress, and keeping ourselves pure from the world. This is what it means to follow God! Another highlight was remembering how God calls us to suffer, but that we, as the body of Christ, can come alongside others in their suffering (2 Cor. 1:3-6).

I also had the opportunity to explain and pass along my book, Father to the Childless, which is an encouragement particularly to those dealing with infertility. The first part of the book was written before I got married, and contains general thoughts on Christian living.
