Event description

Description

Disability and suffering share a complicated and convoluted history. Too often, it is assumed that people with disabilities are suffering their disability, and yet for many people disability is more closely related to who they are as a person than to suffering. Hear first-hand perspectives of multiple ways to relate to suffering, and come away from this module with a renewed appreciation for theologies and pastoral practices that leave space for suffering and yet always practice gracious presence with people with disabilities and those that suffer.
