From Barriers to Belonging: The Church and People with Disabilities

  • Boston College School of Theology and Ministry Chestnut Hill Boston, MA (map)

Annual Pyne Memorial Presentation

What does it really mean for people with disabilities and their families (or anyone) to truly belong within their faith community?  Dr. Carter addresses ten dimensions of belonging and their salience to the inclusion of people with intellectual disability, autism, and other developmental disabilities.  His presentation will spur deeper reflection about the ways in which churches might welcome and weave people with disabilities more fully into the relationships and activities that make up a life of flourishing.
