  • “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” (James 1:27)
    First century orphans were typically the children of widows; they were among the downtrodden of society.
    Today the term “orphan” has expanded to include those who have lost their parents, not just to death, but to drug and alcohol addiction, abuse and neglect.
