DOING JUSTICE is a series of justice-seeking studies created and made available by the Fuller Ogilvie Institute. The Disabilities To Differences study sets the groundwork for a conversation about our relationships with people who have severe differences in their bodies, minds, or emotions. Participants will consider the implications of common terminology used in this subject and learn guidelines for more inclusive language and attitudes. Four common responses among Christians will be explored with biblical and theological frameworks. Learners will evaluate and compare the four common responses in light of the information introduced through a mix of articles, commentary and videos. For some this will be a difficult journey. Learning together to understand the why of certain positions, will unveil wisdom and insight directing a shared journey of discovery toward God’s design of and desire for inclusive inclusion of people ‘with certain limitations, like not being able to hear, walk, or do specific intellectual activities in a typical way.’
