Effective Compassion: Pure and faultless religion - S4.E10

Not every Christian is able or called to foster and adopt. But everyone has a part to play, and churches are finding ways to get more people involved in helping kids in crisis. Because only the church—not government agencies—can meet the deepest spiritual and relational needs of children and families with the hope of the gospel. North Korea is one of the most secretive, closed-off countries in the world, but World Help has a network of trusted partners there with 20+ years of experience smuggling Bibles and other aid to believers. These partners use donations to print, ship, and secretly distribute Bibles as well as food to people who have been desperately praying for help. And since North Koreans share their Bibles with trusted family and friends, each copy impacts around five people. Click here to learn more and donate.

Effective Compassion: Better together - S4.E8

Effective Compassion: Rending and repair - S4.E2

More than a third of Americans say they’ve thought about adopting. But just 2 percent actually have. Adoption is complicated and expensive. It can be confusing and overwhelming. Christians are the most likely to adopt…twice as likely as the general population. That’s because adoption holds a special place in the Kingdom. It’s a common figure of speech in the Bible, describing how we are made part of God’s family. But for all its beauty, adoption is never simple. It involves a lot of broken hearts…on all sides of the equation.You can hear each of the season 4 episodes earlier each week by subscribing to the Effective Compassion feed anywhere you get your podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/effective-compassion/id1492139540North Korea is one of the most secretive, closed-off countries in the world, but World Help has a network of trusted partners there with 20+ years of experience smuggling Bibles and other aid to believers.
