Lent Resources from the Disability Ministry Educators

Rēneti/Lent is upon us and the Disability Ministry Educators are inviting people to reflect on the reality of living in our bodies as God’s creation. The main theme is “How to live more fully as God’s creation.”

Impairment/disability is often seen as wholly negative. However, living with limitation is part of being human. Experiencing our limitations can lead us into life on a deeper level. Sharing these experiences can help us all become aware as to how limitations/impairment are gifts to our communities.

It is hoped that these posters may encourage kōrero/discussion/talanoa around how do we regard our bodies as part of God’s good creation.

For more information contact The Rev’d Vicki Terrell or Cherryl Thompson. They are available to come and meet with groups.

In this package there are posters for Ash Wednesday, Lent 1, Lent 2, and Lent 3. Resources for the rest of Lent and Easter will follow in a couple of weeks. All posters, and posters on other topics, are on the website Disability Ministry Resources — Social Justice Unit.
