Jesus and the Margins: how disability intersects with race and poverty
A Banquet Network Seminar
June 1st, 2019
Why does the banquet parable of Luke 14 include "the poor" with "the crippled, the lame, and the blind"? Why are certain racial groups disproportionately affected by disability? How can the church follow Christ to these margins? On June 1st, church leaders and members from the D.C. area will gather together to consider these and other key questions surrounding the intersection of disability, race, and poverty.
McLean Bible Church will be hosting this Banquet Network seminar in Community Room F on the 3rd Floor. Presenters include: Tom Stolle, CFO of the Baptist Convention of Maryland Delaware and father of a child with severe autism; Michael Crawford, Lead Pastor of Freedom Church Baltimore and Director of Missions for the Baptist Convention of Maryland Delaware; and Amberle Brown, Co-Founder of The Banquet Network.
We pray that you will join us for a time to consider the margins of disability, race, and poverty. This seminar is for both the interested and the experienced. Whether or not you have specific personal or ministry experience with any of these three sectors we hope that you will attend.
*Coffee and snacks will be provided.
