Upended

This is a follow-up to my last post.  If you would like to know a bit more about the Christian Alliance For Orphans (CAFO), the following video gives you a good glimpse into the heart of the organization.  Jedd Medefind, the president of the CAFO, is interviewed about the Alliance as well as about his book, Upended: How following Jesus Remakes Your Words and World.



I highly recommend Upended.  Not just because Jedd is a close relative of mine, but because it is a potentially life-changing book.  It is an extremely practical, contemporary,  and moving book on what it means to truly follow Christ and be an "apprentice" to Him for the glory of God.  It delves into the ins and outs of how our communication with one another and with God shapes not only ourselves, but deeply affects others, and potentially their relationship with God.  Presence, attentiveness, incarnation, authenticity, and concreteness in our relationships are all addressed.  The topics are examined with clarity and depth and brought to life through many stories and personal anecdotes.  It is available in hard copy or digital (Kindle or Nook) versions through the Upended website or Amazon and a few others.
