I had the privilege a few weeks ago of compleating this short interview for YouBelong so I thought I would share it.
Since discovering YouBelong on Twitter I have been following there work and I am so encouraged by what they are doing. I have also enjoyed reading the other interviews in the series so would reccomend checking them out.
The Mission of YouBelong is:
“Community Support Empower
We aim to give chronically ill and disabled christians:
an online support network of people who can also have a chronic illness or disability and share the struggles that come from living as a christian whilst facing the questions and problems that arise from chronic illness/disability.
platforms to discuss disability and chronic illness theology via our blog posts and social media pages
a church who love, support and empower them”youbelong.org.uk
I would really encourage those leading Churches or working in minestry or theology to take a look at the website. Put simply there are lots of small steps Churches can take to make things easier and more accessible for those with chronic illness, mental health conditions and disability. In most cases such small changes often turn out to benefit everyone.
