Ministry to the Marginalized
As the church seeks to reflect Jesus in its ministry, we should be moved by Jesus’ reputation of caring for society's fringe. Those living with mental illness and developmental disabilities have consistently found themselves in society's margins, often being shunned or ignored. Yet each person is an image-bearer of our God, has a role in His kingdom, and deserves love and care. So how do we sensitively minister to those on the fringes of our communities and reflect the kind of care Jesus gave? How do we compassionately exhort God’s people, in all areas of ability, to follow Him and work toward His redemption of the world?
