students at a beyond suffering course

Frederick Buechner wrote, "The place where God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet." We couldn't agree more – that's why we invite you to sign up for our summer certificate course, "Beyond Suffering: Christian Perspectives on Disability Ministry." Scheduled July 12-16 at the International Disability Center, this premier training class will ignite in you a passion to reach for Christ those across the globe who are most often ignored or cast aside – people with disabilities and their families. Taught by Joni Eareckson Tada and our Christian Institute on Disability leaders, participants will learn through lecture, video, group discussion, and hands-on experience. Early registration discounts are available through May 31, so register today!

Dear Joni, your were on my mind a few days ago so I was praying for you and your back pain. As a retired nurse and fellow back pain sufferer, I know it can come and go and return with a vengence and knock us down again and again. Right now I'm dealing with recovery from serious abdominal surgery, Thankfully no cancer, but still a difficult time. Feeling very low and sorry for myself and isn't this the time to have difficulties with my husband, he tries but he is not a nurse or a wife just a husband, if you know what I mean. Anyways just wanted to let you know that what you posted in Your Corner just stopped me in my tracks, and made me think and turn to God again. Confessing my selfishness and self-pity. Thank you so very much for your honesty in your struggle. Pulled out your book A Place of Healing and started to read again. Sincerely Phyllis
