The Kingdom of God will not be complete if we leave out people with disabilities. There are lots of good ways to include everyone. Heartsandsouls is a blog inspired by Engage Disability India which is a movement to strengthen the Christian response to disability in India. The name came to me after reading a story about a poor blind man who, after being shoved out of a church, asked “Don’t I also have a soul?” I have been hearing about some fine examples of Christian responses to disability in India which I’ll try to share. Hopefully as time goes on the best examples will be emulated until church in India becomes fully inclusive.
This is a collection of reflections and stories about disability and church in India.
