Today we remember advocate Betty Van Deemter, revisiting an article written awhile ago by her friend and fellow advocate, Hank Kuntz.
This article outlines the role of the church advocate and provides the steps from considering being a church advocate to working within the role.
Regional Advocates are invaluable to our work in Disability Concerns. Interested in learning more about the role? This roadmap should provide you with the answers!
For a congregation to show agility in accommodating their congregants with disabilities means they cannot continue to do things the way they always did.
Over the course of October, we invited five speakers to come together to discuss caregiving. Each one brought a unique perspective to the conversation!
On June 23 of this year, Barb sent us a message that began, “I heard someone say that there are times in life when you are driving on this great road and you hit a patch of black ice. All of a sudden, life seems quite out of control."
Disability Concerns hosted their first fully online Leadership Training event this year! It was a very successful event that focused on the theme of agility.
People with disabilities tend to be highly agile because they must navigate physical and social structures that are created by and for people who do not have disabilities.
Every church should be a place where everyone belongs and everyone serves, but often people with disabilities are inadvertently overlooked and not able to participate fully in the life of the church.
A living will (also called an advance directive) identifies the kind of medical care you want or don't want in times of serious illness. If you haven't had those conversations yet, now is the time.
