It was a bit weird, if I'm honest...
I was recently part of a day conference hosted by the Inclusive Church Network, looking at Disability and hearing different people's experiences. I was there with Dave, Jarvis his guide dog, and Bill - we are the core team of a group called Disability & Jesus.
And it was great.
And it was weird.
I was suddenly surrounded by people with disabilities.
I found myself at one point sat on a chair alongside 3 people in wheelchairs, looking across at another 4 wheelchairs, 2 guide dogs, and a variety of people with walking aids...
You rarely find that outside A&E departments.
I'm usually the only disabled in the village - surrounded by ableds.
At the conference I was not unique.
Neither was I alone.
As I say - great, but weird.
