About-

"Dancing with Disabilities is about the ever-changing relationship between two groups…locked like dancers in either a passionate embrace or a dance of separareness, trying to move to the rhythm of the music that one or the other hears."
- from the Introduction

Imagine what a church could be if those who are "disabled" and those who are "able-bodied" were to understand them-selves to be equal partners in the faith community.

Writing personally and passionately on this compelling subject, Brett Webb-Mitchell relates the struggles and triumphs, frustrations and joys, of the children and adults with disabilities whom he has met through his ministry. It is these persons who put a genuinely human face to "disabilities" - and those presence challenges the church to welcome all God's children to their rightful place in the Christian community.
