La quotidianità adolescenziale è colma di conflitti, di entusiasmi e di cambiamenti che a volte noi adulti banalizziamo o di cui non ricordiamo l'intensità. Il libro parla soprattutto della scuola, delle difficoltà con gli insegnanti che mettono le note e che lanciano sguardi carichi di significato ai loro alunni, e delle difficoltà con i compagni quando si viene esclusi dal gruppo o quando un soprannome o un "etichetta" possono condizionare la vita a scuola. Credo che il mio compito sia cercare di condividere a mia volta con chi leggerà il libro cosa c'è dietro questo piccolo grande lavoro.

Do you want your church to be a place of belonging? Do you want your church to be Irresistible?<br /><br />An Irresistible Church is an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong. Doing Life Together will equip your church to serve families affected by disability, not only on Sunday mornings, but as part of an true community. <br /><br />Many churches have very active Disability Ministries.  However, most of the ministry takes place on Sunday mornings.   But what happens to families affected by disability between noon on Sunday and 9:00 AM the next Sunday?   That period of time is when the “messiness” of life with a disability takes place.   This booklet offers practical tools for churches and individuals to help meet practical needs,  build community and remove some of the isolations that families affected by disability experience.<br /> <br />This booklet will also help you to better understand the unique ways disability affects each member of the family; parents, spouses, siblings and grandparents.  Disability is definitely all about doing life together!

<b>Do you want your church to be a place of belonging? Do you want your church to be Irresistible?</b> <br /><br />An Irresistible Church is an authentic community built on the hope of Christ that compels people affected by disability to fully belong. Church leaders with a heart to serve families affected by disability frequently ask, “How do I know the best way to include each special friend when their needs vary?” This book is a response to that question, offering step-by-step tools for evaluating the needs of friends with disabilities and creating a culture that welcomes these individuals and their families. Within these pages, we discuss creating accessible environments that provide access to the Gospel while being sensitive to learning styles and physical needs. The Irresistible Church movement seeks to build relationships rather than programs. By creating inclusive environments churches help individuals affected by disability discover and practice the gifts God has given them while fostering a culture of authentic relationships.
