2012 Disability Inclusion Resource Packet
June 24, 2012 is designated on the Presbyterian Planning Calendar as Disability Inclusion Sunday. PHEWA’s Presbyterians for Disability Concerns (PDC) has developed our annual Resource Packet to help in observing this day- on June 24 or whenever works best in the life of your worshiping community. This year’s theme, A Variety of Gifts: Inclusion of People With Disabilities As We Age, has as its goals- For people who are aging, the challenge to overcome the stereotypes that devalue aging and to live with dignity and creativity; and, For the church, the challenges are to embrace all members of the body of Christ in the community and to affirm and welcome the gifts of persons of all ages. PDC members believe that every Sunday – and every day between Sundays – should be a day for including all members of the body of Christ in the life of the community, and we dedicate these resources toward that reality.
