One often-forgotten facet of our commitment to justice in its many forms is disability justice— making space for people of many different ability levels in every part of our life together in beloved community. Spoon theory is a recently-developed lens through which we can view illness and disability, both in our own health journeys and in others’. In this worship service, we will reflect together on the ways we each travel through the world of ability and disability. What do we each gain, separately and together, when we reflect on our spiritual lives through the lens of spoon theory? What do our grieving and our living look like as we journey through periods of ability and disability? Come worship with us on our last Sunday of this justice-focused month of worship. Remember that, at our 11am service, there will be special programming for our youngest worshippers!
