September 22-23: Week Two seminars were led by Rev. H. Daniel Kim of Joy Center for the Disabled. In his lecture entitled, “Understanding Restorative Humanity.” Pastor Kim challenged us to reexamine our perception of what it means to be part of the new creation, and how the marginalized are viewed in the new creation order.
We confessed that many times the church has failed to include and welcome people with disabilities as full participants in the community which is quite contradictory to how Jesus viewed them. Joy, the beautiful daughter of Rev. Kim, and Paul, an active member of Joy Center- both who have Down Syndrome- testified truth to the powers.
