This is Josh Bradley and his son Dawson. Josh is one of my best friends and is starting a brand new church in Woodruff, SC. This post has nothing to do with that, even though you should definitely check it out here at elementwoodruff.org
Josh’s son Dawson has Trisomy 18. He has a wonderfully crazy story of God’s love for Him and Josh’s family as well. I am writing this blog for people who work in Special Needs Ministry or know someone who does. I am incredibly proud of the ministry that we have at Brookwood called Special Friends and the incredible work they do for families that have special needs children.
I want to echo something that my friend Josh says all the time. “Special Needs Kids are not Second String Kids”. And as such we should spend the time to minister with excellence to them as well. And this resource that I ran across last week is geared towards helping out ministries for special needs children.
Amy Fenton Lee has started a blog called The Inclusive Church. If you know anyone who has a hand in special needs ministry, I am begging you to contact them today and point them to this resource. In the short time that it’s been available, the material has been ultra killer awesome! Seriously, it’s sort of ridiculous. I haven’t met or talked to Amy before but if you know her just let her know that there are a lot of people that are blessed by her work.
Keep it up Amy, your site rocks!
