This site is simply one person’s effort to bring together disability resources for Orthodox Christians and those interested in Orthodox Christian offerings concerning disability. Perhaps one day a team of Orthodox Christian scholars and professionals will put together an official Orthodox Christian website toward this end. But until that day, I offer this site, with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Thomas. It is not comprehensive; it is merely an effort to begin addressing the need for an Orthodox Christian disability resources website. Lord have mercy on me, a sinner, for my omissions and mistakes!
A Master’s thesis, completed in 2007 under Father Ted Pulcini’s direction, in association with the Antiochian House of Studies/Balamand University in Lebanon: St John Chrysostom and the Socialization of Persons with Developmental Disability: Patristic Inspiration for Contemporary Application
The Thesis led to this weblog. Here’s the story: Arms Open Wide to Persons with Disability
Here is my personal apologetic for the Orthodox Christian faith: Impelled by the Scriptures into the Orthodox Church
To Him whose arms remain ever wide open, for persons with disability as well as for all, the Lord Jesus Christ, together with the Father Who Is from everlasting, and the All Holy, Life-giving Spirit, be glory, honor, worship, and thanksgiving, unto the ages of ages. Amen.
