"She was such a nice young lady. Then she talked to me, and when she heard my voice, she took the same [condescending] tone. Suddenly, I felt small, lesser. I felt condescended to, patronized, and diminished."
This message by Dan Vander Plaats, Director of Advancement at Elim Christian Services, winsomely challenges his audience to examine their own attitudes toward people who have disabilities. Based on 1 Corinthians 12:14-27, Dan reflects on his own experience as a person with a speech disability and how God has used that in his life to transform his attitude about other people who live with disabilities of various kinds.
