This Sunday our Perspectives sermon series continues with Rev. Dr. Bethany McKinney Fox who will join us and offer a sermon from the disability or ability-inclusive perspective.
Rev. Dr. Bethany McKinney Fox is founding leader of Beloved Everybody, an ability-inclusive faith community in Los Angeles where people with and without intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities, as well as neurodiverse folks, lead and participate together. She is director of spiritual formation for Cyclical LA, a church starting network, and coaches other church starters through the PCUSA's 1001 New Worshiping Communities network. Her book Disability and the Way of Jesus: Holistic Healing in the Gospels and the Church (IVP Academic, 2019) examines how Jesus' healing in the Gospels, too often used in ways that wound people with disabilities, might point a way toward real healing and mutual thriving. She is ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
Following Sunday worship Storytelling & Heling: The Sides of Suicide lead by Rudy Caseres returns to the garden. The event begins at 6:30pm. All Are Welcome for this powerful evening of sharing and connection.
We are looking forward to welcoming Rev. Fox to the garden and spending some time in the gospel of Mark. Come as you are, stay as you are able.
