On the brand-new Joni and Friends Ministry Podcast, we’re learning to live out the call of Jesus to embrace all people, no matter their abilities. Each week we’re discovering together how to live out Jesus’ clear call to love those who are so often marginalized, misunderstood, and excluded from the life of the church and community. We’re exploring a biblical view of disability and practical steps for loving everyone the way Christ does. We want to help you love and serve people with disabilities in your church and community to build a truly Irresistible Church!
For our first episode, host Crystal Keating sits down with Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends, to talk about insights Joni’s gained from 51 years as a quadriplegic in a wheelchair and 40 years of leading a growing ministry for people with disabilities. Joni also shares how she’s holding on to hope following a second cancer diagnosis and practical ways that encourage her – tangible tips you and your church can also use to encourage someone going through a health or disability-related challenge.
