What I Would Tell You…
What would you tell the church, over coffee, about your life with a disability?
Are you a person living with disabilities* (visible and/or invisible), a caregiver, or ally? The Theologies of Disability Working Group of The United Church of Canada invites you to tell your stories about your faith life with disability.
How has this made you vulnerable?
How has it shaped your understanding of God and the church?
You are welcome to respond with a spoken or written story, or by submitting an original video, photograph, piece of art, music, or other form of expression.
It would be an honour and a privilege of the Theologies of Disability Working Group to gather these stories, and we would take seriously and care for any of your contributions. These stories will inform work leading up to the 42nd General Council in 2015. Personally identifying features of the stories will be changed. The working group will seek permission from you before sharing your stories in a widely distributed format.
