This book is part of Monica Short’s PhD studies and is the second in a series about the Anglican Church. BCA partnered with The Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn, CBM Australia’s Luke 14 Program and Charles Sturt University in support of this research. The book presents ideas about how local churches can further their engagements with people living with disabilities in rural and urban locations.
It also includes an essay by Dr Louise Gosbell.
The book shares examples of how social inclusion can be a living expression of mission. It presents the complex beauty of Christian faith through the perspectives of 20 people living with disabilities. Their valuable voices tell a story of inclusion, belonging, justice, social capital, integration, strength, hope, belief and mission.
Monica Short thank The Bush Church Aid Society and CBM Australia (Luke 14 Program) for jointly funding the publication of the book, a print run and online verions.
