The idea here is simple: To make space for anyone interested in exploring resources, authors, theologians and practical tips for increasingly accessible faith communities. We hope that through this site we will learn from, encourage, and support one another in welcoming people with and without disabilities into communities of belonging.

WORD:

“He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he has brought justice through to victory!” (Matthew 12:19-20)

THOUGHT:

Justice Jesus-style is not about demanding my rights, but about advocating and advancing justice on behalf of others. It is different from the world’s “justice.” It is a justice of gentleness, compassion, and grace.

PRAYER:

Lord Jesus, help us to understand how to live out your justice. May we engage with one another in a way that brings strength, hope, and restoration, rather than brokenness, weakness, and rejection.

WORD:

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” (Proverbs 31:8-9)

THOUGHT:

We have a responsibility and opportunity to ‘speak up’ for those whose voices are not heard. We must ensure that we are listening, and lending our voice on behalf of those who need justice. In this we are not replacing the voice of the other, but in getting to know those who are not heard they are able to speak with and through us.

PRAYER:

Lord, give me a listening heart so that those who need to be heard may speak through me.
