Parental Stand-Ins

Mike Cope’s latest column in the Christian Standard describes the healing and comfort offered by those who stand in for parents who can’t be there, and in so doing, stand in for a heavenly Father:

We Must Welcome the Children.

He recounts both the accident on the way back from Winterfest which injured his son Chris (and took the life of one of Chris’ close friends) and a double homicide near Highland Church of Christ where he preaches.

No one could redefine the term “godparents” like Mike.
