When I dream about the church as a welcoming community of God, I picture a church that fully engages people with disabilities in its life and ministry. Some churches have made this a reality, but most are still on the road. Chelwood Christian Reformed Church in Albuquerque has done exceptionally well at including people with intellectual disabilities, so well that this is a significant part of their outreach ministry.
I wrote this devotional for the Strangers in the Land devotional series from the Office of Social Justice of the Christian Reformed Church.
Looking to grow your church? Likely, you have people living close by who would love to get involved.
