Authored by Rev. Scott Higgins, ‘Belonging Together on Earth’ builds our biblical understanding of justice from ‘On Earth as it is Heaven’ focusing on inclusion of people living with disability and their carers.
A church’s theology influences the ways people living with disability are perceived and incorporated into the life of the church. It affects how they belong.
‘Belonging Together on Earth’ explores a theology of belonging that can be outworked within our local churches and communities.
