Glaube und Behinderung

 Glaube un Behinderung

People with a disability do not need separate church services, they need the admission warm welcome in their church.  We seek spiritual welfare – for people with disabilities, and help churches to understand and integrate people with a disability. We advice – about structural barriers – we give biblical answers to questions – we give the people with a disability a voice in the churches and in society – we organize holidays and weekends – we speak in church services, in seminars and in theological training centres.

Our differences are often visible. It is how we are – and we are created by God. God loves every one of us personally and has a plan for us; that gives us hope. We share this hope with other people in the same situation. We support people with a disability, to find their place in the church. We set an example of how to support people with a disability.
