Abled in the Church

Carl, Todd, and I had the pleasure of welcoming Melanie Brunson and her guide dog, Sparta, in the underground bunker to interview for this week’s Mortification of Spin podcast. The tagline of our podcast is “casual conversations about things that count.” Well that couldn’t be any more true for our episode today. Melanie Brunson is a lawyer as well as the Executive Director for the American Council of the Blind. We ask her some very practical questions about how the church can show love and care for those with disabilities and how we can be more inclusive. Melanie also answers some more theological questions such as coping with the sovereignty of God when you are living with a disability. Have a listen here, and learn how you can better engage and interact with those who have disabilities, as well as with their guide dogs.1311846409661
