How can I reach out to a family with Special Needs?

BigBook2012Cover-110212a-788x1024I was given the opportunity to write an article for The Old Schoolhouse magazine on the topic of special needs and hospitality. Inspired by the moving story of Mephibosheth from the Old Testament, “Hospitality That Proclaims the Gospel” provides one answer to the question “How can I reach out to a family with special needs?” The article was published in the 2013 print edition, is available online for all to read, and it’s totally free.

In case you missed it, The Old Schoolhouse published another of mine, “Nobody’s Normal,” in a previous digital issue.
