Make Room, created by Home for Good, is a new four-session Bible study resource for anyone who would like to dig a bit deeper into what the Bible says about the heart of God and how that connects to finding a home for every child who needs one.
The resource comes with a personal recommendation from Bishop Cam Corely, who as well as being the BIshop of Stockport is also a foster carer with his wife Claire.
Bishop Sam commented: “Having been a foster carer myself, I know how valuable the support and understanding of people around you can be when caring for a child. I am so grateful that Home for Good are offering ‘Make Room’ to help us all consider the part we can play in supporting vulnerable children and those who care for them, and I commend this resource to you highly.”
Many individuals, families, and churches have been inspired by the words in Isaiah 54:2 and prompted to explore how we, the Church, can ‘make room’ for vulnerable children and young people in our spaces, our communities, and our lives.
Enlarge the site of your tent [to make room for more children]; stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not spare them; lengthen your tent ropes and make your pegs (stakes) firm [in the ground].
Isaiah 54:2 AMP
Home for Good, the charity behind the resource, believes passionately that each one of us has a part to play and says it is "delighted to launch its new four-session Bible study resource created for individuals, small groups or whole churches who want to explore what their part could be."
The resource covers the topics of justice, radical hospitality, family, and church, and consists of a leader guide, personal journal pages for each participant, a collection of short films containing teaching and real-life stories, and a full online library of articles, stories, and other useful links.
Make Room is free, and you can sign up to access the resource at www.homeforgood/resource/make-room
