Yw - great to have you on the list! I hope it will grow as more and more of us develop our service/ministry :)

I only wish I could do something like that - beyond my capacity. But I'd support such a thing and be keen to contribute to it!

Fits into the (frankly horrific) history of 'normalisation' policies, which were especially aimed at people with learning disabilities, but also autistic people. It's terrifying that it still goes on, since this policy started in the 1970s, if I remember right.

One of these days I want to write some (not-academic-enough) theology of Peter as a picture of neurodivergent Christians. :)

(2/2) I definitely need to learn to "pay attention", but I think God is in my ways of communicating too. Thanks for thought-provoking commentary on the passage and sharing your beautiful experience of the chapel. Loved that. Wishing you a safe move!

(1/2) I love Peter. His ADHD/neurodivergent-style reaction makes it into the Bible, even if part of the message is for him to shut up! Peter is the person I identify with most in the Bible. He had lots to learn, but Jesus called *someone like me* -maybe a bit ironically?- a Rock.

“One in four disabled people are currently facing redundancy, according to Citizens Advice report.” This is really concerning, given how few of the disabled community are employed in ordinary times, e.g. only 16% of autistic people in FT employment.

If you are a disabled person being told the Equality Act is 'eased off' or not fully applicable because of Covid19, you may wish to read this blogpost about challenging misconceptions. Some small changes may be legit, but many are just nonsense.

Thanks that might be good! I’m at an early stage of working it out but I want to have a ‘theology and its impacts’ type section, so that might be very good for that :)

Thanks, looks very useful! I’m having a sick day but will link when back at laptop. We should talk about combining forces sometime. I am working on a Disability Equality for Churches training course.

Gamechanger. Look forward to using this when the pandemic has chilled out. If you're not disabled, try checking if your journey can be done step-free.
