Disability Resource Pages: The inspiration; The blessing; Courtesies; Life! . . .

(. . . also Orthodox Christian lingo: a glossary)

The following Arms Open Wide Resource Pages are reference pages rather than lists of resources, presenting general background information and related issues:

St. John Chrysostom †407

St. John Chrysostom

The Chrysostom page is an inspirational quotation by St. John Chrysostom which concisely sums up why it is in the best interests of those in the Church who do not have a mental or physical disability to care about the well-being and inclusion of those who do, and to integrate them into Orthodox Christian Parish Church life.

When Orthodox Christian seek to undertake a ministry for the Church, we are to seek our Bishop’s blessing. Here’s the record that this site has received this blessing: Bishop Thomas’ blessing

This helpful guide for relating to persons with disabilities in our parishes and elsewhere was first published by Holy Taxiarhai and Saint Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church in Niles, Illinois 60714, in their weekly bulletin for October 10 – October 17, 2010:  Guidelines and Courtesies for interacting with persons with disabilities

In that persons with disabilities are at risk in the womb, through abortion, and at the beginning and (seeming) end of their lives, many posts were devoted to resources which addressed this deadly risks, and they can be found on this Page:  Sanctity of Life

And for those readers who are not acquainted with the terminology of Orthodox Christian theology and practice, there is the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese’ Glossary of Orthodox Church Terms
