The Theological and Social Context of Inclusive Support for People with Disabilities Provided by the Christian Community
Vyskočilová Alena, Slowík Josef
The study presents the theoretical context of an inclusive approach to people with disabilities and disadvantages, not only as a modern social phenomenon, but also from the point of view of Christian theology and practical Christianity within the ecclesial community. The qualitative research used a phenomenographic interview with a woman with physical disability and also her two friends from the Christian community; it presents the possibilities and the pitfalls of inclusive support in such a community for persons with disabilities. Respondents’ testimonies
point to some categories of needs of persons with disabilities, in which the naturally pro-inclusive Christian community can play an important (or indispensable) role, and even in terms of social work this resource of support has signifi cant potential.
