When we are afraid, we tend to run from the object of our fear. Naturally, we do not like being uncomfortable or out of our element. But it is not uncommon for fear to dissipate when we simply gain a greater understanding of that which we fear.
In the world of disability ministry, we have discovered that one of the most common reasons churches aren’t engaging in ministry with individuals affected by disability is because of fear. They are nervous that they will do something wrong or won’t know how to interact with individuals with special needs. They wonder if there are more liabilities engaging in this type of ministry.
Here at Irresistible Church, one of our goals is to educate people so that this fear no longer exists. We want people to understand that we are more alike than different.
We recently came across a YouTube video that we feel provides a beautiful opportunity to dispel some of these fears. Please allow us to introduce you to Archie and his sister, Sevy – an amazing sibling pair that is working to teach the world more about individuals with special needs. We hope this video inspires, educates, and encourages you!
