One In Five for 19 June 2011

From One In Five, 7:00 pm on 19 June 2011

Disability Awareness Sunday - Artist, poet and church worker Rhonda Swenson gives artistic expression to living with multiple disabilities, including cerebral palsy and specific learning disability. And her 'disproportionate cross'... a large wooden cross in which the crooked angle of the horizontal bar represents her personal response to living with disability in the so-called 'normal' world is an example of her participation in the Christian community. She talks to Mike Gourley about Disability Awareness Sunday and efforts to help congregations engage more fully with disabled people.
