Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

Is your church Ableist?

Background

How easy is it for disabled people to fully engage with the life of your church? How much are their leadership gifts and prophetic insights welcomed? Or do the physical barriers like steps and narrow aisles signify a deeper problem in fellowships that are set up for able-bodied people?

 

Naomi Lawson Jacobs and Emily Richardson have compiled a book detailing the experiences of over 50 Christians with varying physical and neuro-diverse issues – it makes for a powerful and uncomfortable read.

 

They shared with Esther Higham how they hope these stories will help our churches understand what’s missing when we don’t fully embrace the perspective of disabled people.
