18 months ago the youngest child of Andrew and Lila was diagnosed with autism. They shared their story with us. As well, they looked at how the Bible talks about disability, as well as a few practical tips for how the church can better welcome people with disabilities.
What if normal looked like transforming our communities by compassion? What if normal was not just seeing people where they are at but calling out the potential we see in those around us? What if normal was living in relationship with our Heavenly Father?
We see how faithful God is when we read Daniel's story. Faith is submitting to the Father even when it's different from what we want. Faith comes from God's faithfulness not from what we can do. God is looking for people who will say 'I want to be faithful to you because you are faithful to me'
Jesus is more interested in revealing God as father than a distant deity. Jesus wasn't rescuing us from an angry God but He was revealing the truth of Who God is. Jesus is more interesting in restoring humanity than punishing it. Jesus is more interested in rescuing your future than condemning your past.
