Living Into the Body of Christ: Towards Full Inclusion of People with Disabilities (2006)

The purpose of the recommendations included in this report and the background to follow is to enable churches to welcome people with disabilities and to advocate with them for justice both within the church and in society. Justice in the Reformed perspective is marked by the exhibition of social righteousness in conduct, covenant, and relationships. It takes form in social structures that permit the flourishing of all of God’s people. Therefore, full inclusion for people living with disabilities requires compassion and the establishment of a just social reality. The church exhibits its love for neighbor in the full participation of people living with disabilities, giving integrity to our advocacy for justice in the world. Seeking always the fullest life of the church, we further encourage our church to explore with other denominations new ways to embrace persons living with disabilities.
