Australian Christian Woman magazine piece
I received my copy of the July August 2007 Australian Christian Woman magazine, which features an article entitled Tapestry of Disability. Its author, Melinda Tognini, interviewed me for the article and I spoke about spiritual inclusion in churches. Also included in the article are interviews with a 12 year old, Ella Witham, who was born with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (which includes a cleft palate, hearing and vision impairments and an intellectual disability) and Tanya Alexander who has an intellectual disability and a hearing impairment.
The article discusses social and attitudinal barriers, some of which originate from the Bible, and how perceptions are changing.
Since the article includes a link to Wheelie Catholic, let me extend a big welcome to readers of the magazine!
