SURPRISED BY DISABILITY

A good word by fellow blogger Al Hsu in his latest Christianity Today article: "Surprised by Disability." I especially appreciate the quote from Joan Mahler, coordinator of L'Arche USA: "All of us are abled in some ways and disabled in others. People with developmental disabilities often help all of us understand our own brokenness." Ironically, only those who are in touch with their own brokenness can be made truly whole; only those who are in touch with the brokenness of the people and systems around them can be truly enlisted in the work of making whole. This is a good word for me and my generation.
