A study resource that may be a blessing to you or someone you know.
I recently came across an interesting Bible study course put together by Larry and Lisa Jamieson, who are co-founders of Walk Right In Ministries. The curriculum is called Finding Glory in the Thorns—thus the creepy image attached to this post.
What intrigues me about this material is that the authors have specifically designed it as a resource for individuals and families facing disability, illness, and/or serious care-giving situations.
Larry and Lisa are the parents of three children, including a daughter born with Angelman Syndrome. Thus, they bring a wealth of experience and compassion to the table when they write about this subject. Here's what they had to say about the Finding Thorns curriculum:
While the content of this Bible study tool is broadly applicable, it has obvious value for individuals and families experiencing disability and/or caregiving situations. The long-term vision for this curriculum is that it will become for the special needs community what the curricula of Celebrate Recovery, Griefshare and DivorceCare programs have become for people challenged by addiction, loss and broken marriages.
