One of the areas I have found myself exploring more in the past few years is the theology of disability. What does it mean to be embodied? What does it look like when we come to terms with the fact that most of us will face disability in our lifetimes? How do we experience God in our brokenness and in our hope for healing? How do we see ourselves as part of larger systems and ecosystems that are also, crumbling, to use my guest’s words…? Lyndsey Medford takes us through some of those questions in her researched memoir and in this conversation. This episode is both challenging and hopeful and I fully expect you will find something (or many things) that will get your hearts and minds turning stirred toward Jesus, your neighbors, and his kingdom.
