Life in Church

Theological Reflections of Persons with Disabilities
Edited by:
Anjeline Okola
Syovata Kilonzo

This publication is part of the Ecumenical Disability Advocates Network’s (EDAN’s) work under the Advocacy for the Rights and Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities project.

Although good work has been done on disability inclusion in churches, EDAN also identified gaps in that the voices of persons with disabilities within the church are not heard. The editors emphasize that “it is no longer valid for other Christians to speak about persons with disabilities as if we weren’t already present in the church to speak up for ourselves.”

The first part of this publication highlights the voices of persons with disabilities who are currently serving their churches in various roles and capacities and of those who had to leave a church due to the discriminatory behaviour and attitudes that they experienced. The second part of this publication shares the WCC statement “A Gift of Being: Called to be a Church of All and for All.”
