Yesterday I had the privilege of guest posting on Diving for Pearls, the blog-child of Katie Wetherbee. Katie is my online ministry BFF, and she's my sounding board for all things Access Ministry. You'll find the beginning of that post below.
Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, “Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.”
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. (Isaiah 35:3-6)
This post isn’t going to be about what you think it will be. It’s not about people with disabilities.
It’s about a church that has disabled itself.
Please don’t get me wrong. I love the church...
