Well, I thought I had it all figured out--how I am supposed to respond to people with disabilities. After reading the first chapter of Same Lake, Different Boat, I quickly realized that I have a lot to learn. As I continued to read the book, I took note of how many people connected with our little church are touched by some form of disability. We have one who has both physical and emotional instability, others who have troublesome limbs, one who has a form of autism, others who have suffered strokes, another who has a form of Lou Gehrig's disease, another who deals with seizures, and others. I've been scratching my head in some of these situations, wondering, How am I to be thinking concerning such and such a person's situation? What can I do? And what can I say?
Same Lake, Different Boat is a biblically grounded, readable, and entertaining book addressing this vital issue of church life, namely, responding rightly to disabilities and to those touched by them. Stephanie has written to the church with the purpose of equipping God's people with a biblical view of disabilities, of informing God's people about the needs of families touched by disabilities, and of suggesting plans of action for each member of the body of Christ to help those touched by disabilities. I am amazed at how much I enjoyed and have learned from this treatise.
By way of addressing this subject, Stephanie relies upon the Word of God, which has molded her perspective.Read more ›
