Presentation Date: Wednesday, May 27, 2020
In an era of increasing awareness of the harm of social divisions, how can churches become places of inclusion and belonging for people on the margins, including people with intellectual and physical disabilities? Amy Julia Becker is the author of “White Picket Fences: Turning toward Love in a World Divided by Privilege”, and a recent companion ebook “Head, Heart, Hands”. Becker discusses the opportunities faith communities have to bring a holistic understanding of healing to individuals, churches, and local communities. She will offer a framework for individuals and institutions to acknowledge harm, reach out for help, and participate in healing.
