“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

My grandson Carson is an actor. This past year he did some voice over work for Sesame Street. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXjc5KcU9bs That's his voice you hear introducing the letter "N" to preschoolers.The picture at the upper right is Carson recording the segment for Sesame Street.  

Since infancy he sat on my lap as we whizzed everywhere in my electric wheelchair. He's learned about disability inclusion and it's second nature to him and his siblings. They understand the wheelchair is simply a tool to assist me with mobility, just like and guide dogs help other disabled people, and glasses help people see better. 

Rocco Florentino on Sesame Street
Below is a different clip from Sesame Street. It is promoting disability inclusion, featuring young Rocco Florentino. He is blind; he's also very musical. See below. Well done Sesame Street!

This is something the Church should be doing in a Christian context while providing an example to society of including people with disabilities as indispensable members of our communities. Everyone has something to the table of human experience.
