Episode Synopsis

December 3, is International Day of People with Disabilities.  The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly and aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.

In honour of International Day of People with Disabilities, the Rev. Alexa Gilmour, minister at Windemere United Church in Toronto, spent some time in conversation with PhD candidate Elizabeth Mohler about disability, the church, the Advent story and the assumptions that are often brought forward when one listens to these familiar biblical texts.  We are fortunate to be able to sit in on this conversation.
