The barriers people with disabilities face begin with people’s attitudes — attitudes often rooted in misinformation and misunderstandings about what it’s like to live with a disability.
When we all love other people, we are letting Jesus' light shine in us for all the world to see. Even if there are some things we can't do, we CAN all love people.
We have found Disability Awareness Sundays to be inspiring worship times as we encourage persons with disabilities and invite everyone to joyfully live out their faith with the helping hand of Christian love.
Because of Disability Awareness Sunday, our congregation became more aware of the need to be inclusive in worship. We have a ways to go but have taken steps in getting started.
"The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
