Unexpected Guests at God's Banquet: Welcoming People with Disabilities in the Church
Taking insight from Jesus' parable of the banquet feast, this practical and challenging call to a more inclusive church shows why disabled people--the mentally disabled, the physically impaired, and others--must be a part of congregational life, and offers advice on how to make this a reality.
I am a pilgrim, a parent of two amazing young adults, an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA), a visiting associate professor at North Carolina Central University (Durham, NC), a writer; and Director of School of the Pilgrim (www.schoolofthepilgrim.com). I've written several books, starting with GOD PLAYS PIANO TOO; UNEXPECTED GUESTS AT GOD'S BANQUET; DANCING WITH DISABILITIES; SACRED SEASONS; CHRISTLY GESTURES; FOLLOW ME; ON BEING A GAY PARENT; and BEYOND ACCESSIBILITY.
