Open to All: Including the Disabled in Your Church Community

Everyone needs God, says Nick Vujicic, a Christian evangelist born with a rare condition characterized by the absence of all four limbs. Vujicic, who preaches to packed churches around the globe, credits his faith for giving him such strength. However, few U.S. churches sufficiently accommodate people with disabilities, according to author Mark Pinsky, who has written about places of worship and the disabled. In an 8 1/2-minute video news story prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, correspondent Lucky Severson explores the expanding role of the disabled in American religious life and the impact Pinsky’s book, Amazing Gifts: Stories of Faith, Disability, and Inclusion can have on faithful people and communities. Use it to initiate conversations in your faith community. Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly is a source for cutting-edge religion news and analysis.
