Churches and Persons with Disabilities
According to a recent program on Religion and Ethics Newsweekly, “Nick Vujicic is a rock star. He’s packed them in churches around the globe. This is his second visit to Northland mega church in Orlando – a preacher with no arms and no legs who wants no sympathy.”
“The disabled,” says religion writer Mark Pinsky, author of Amazing Gifts: Stories of Faith, Disability, and Inclusion, “are not just people who need help, but people who can help.” As more and more congregations learn how to value people with disabilities, we visit Northland, a megachurch in Orlando that welcomes and accommodates people with special needs.
