Here is a timely reminder for churches old and new:

Churches where no wheelchairs go – Eureka Street.

Universal access should be on the agenda of any community group that pursues compassion and hope as core values – and that surely includes church communities. It would be good for church board/ vestry/ management groups to voluntarily spend an hour or two negotiating their properties in a wheelchair or on a zimmer frame, perhaps with dimmed glasses and earplugs to experience how those physically afflicted experience movement, sight and sound. Then use some creative imagination to make their communities even more inclusive!
