Fiona McCabe, a member of my church community, and trustee of Through the Roof, has written this great article on response to disability. What is your response to disability? With all the discussions about the nature of Church and culture, does disability get any time within that process, and is it on anyones radar?
What strikes me is that most of us don't have a conscious response or awareness of disability, as we plan and do life - until disability affects us directly. For me it's been coming to terms with a child of our own with learning and developmental disorders that has been most challenging.
