Event description

Description

This course provides an overview of ways in which disability has been received and interpreted through history, in society, and in the church. It explores problematic and redemptive images of disability through scripture and then points the way toward communities of belonging, where every member of church communities experiences an environment where their God-given gifts are valued and respected.
