You may or may not know that I used to be the associate editor for Faith Today magazine. Although I have moved on to other endeavours, I’m still very excited about the magazine. I sometimes even get an article published in it myself.
This month, I had an article published, titled “How to Become a Disability-Friendly Church.” As a pastor and a parent of two children with disabilities, this is a subject that is close to my heart.
What I want people in the church to see is that you don’t have to be a large church or need to have multiple staff to be disability-friendly. In many ways it is much more a culture issue than a program issue.
The church has not always done well in welcoming people with disabilities and their families. I have heard my share of horror stories. Even the churches that do well can always improve.
I hope that you will check out my article and read the rest of the articles while you are at it. And I would like to thank Faith Today for their willingness to get this important message out.
PS I also have a book review published in this issue as well.
