Christian care: Network 1:27 meets in Florida

“Magical Moments.”

That’s the theme of the Network 1:27 annual conference in Orlando, Fla., this week. If you’re not familiar with that organization, you may know it by its previous name: the Christian Child and Family Services Association. The 1:27 refers to Bible verses in Genesis, 1 Samuel and James.

I’m here covering the conference and doing a little reporting. I’ve noticed in recent months that there seem to be a lot of children’s homes running ads in The Christian Chronicle seeking houseparents. I’m curious about that trend and hope to write about it in the near future.

I wonder: Do you and/or your home congregation still support children’s homes? Email me at [email protected] I’d love to hear from you.
