As we seek to reach out further into our community and even reaching out more effectively to our own congregation, several of my fellow church members were able to attend Desiring God’s conference on disability ministry earlier this month. I was quite jealous as I received their live tweets and heard their reports when they came back. Now, you can download both the video and audio of this conference from the Desiring God website. As someone who grew up in a family that struggled with disabilities and attended churches that struggled with helping families struggling with these disabilities, it is such a joy to see this topic being grappled with! So, I would encourage you to listen to each of these messages and develop a heart for the disabled in your community and within your congregation (trust me, they are there!).
