Bridge Disability Ministries
October 27, 2010
Bridge has an amazing way of reaching out to faith communities by offering them the chance to have an event at their place of worship that includes and shares with those with disabilities in a joyous atmosphere. The last event was held at a church on a Sunday afternoon where we worshiped God and celebrated the wedding vows of two folks in our community. The couple not only felt affirmed by our friendship and well wishes, but encouraged as their marriage was blessed by God and witnessed by their friends. This is an incredible witness on a variety of different levels, not only to the couple professing their love and starting a new family together, but for the larger community as a whole.
These events happen at least monthly and although there isn't always a wedding celebration they are always joyful and blessed.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the way they include people with disabilities as a normal everyday part of what life is all about.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have more people engaged so that even more events, relationships, and experiences of inclusion could be enjoyed.
