Religion that is pure and undefiled
before God, the Father, is this:
to visit orphans and widows
in their affliction . . .
This is the weekend of Orphan Sunday. The exhibitors at Bethlehem this weekend represent an array of ways to "visit" orphans.
I hope you'll look through these and pray for God's guidance how you might be involved at some level in one of these opportunities for true religion.
