Jedd Medefind is the former Director of the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives under President George W. Bush. Jedd now serves as President of the Christian Alliance for Orphans. The Alliance unites a coalition of more than one hundred respected Christian organizations in joint advocacy campaigns that ignite and equip Christians for adoption, foster care and global orphan initiatives.
I had a stimulating conversation with Jedd around his new book Upended: How Following Jesus Remakes Your Words & World. Our highly technological culture (and our 24/7 connectedness to it) has created a faux authenticity and community. Jedd finds the remedy in each of us apprenticing ourselves to Jesus Christ to learn to be truly present, authentic, and real with those we love and others we ought to love.
