Full course description

Disability, Culture, & Theology: An Introduction

In this course, learners will explore the intersection of disability and culture, the history of disability in the church and the civil rights movement, and spend time with some disability theologians before participating in a final constructive activity in their own context. Material from Rev. Justin Hancock's forthcoming book, The Julian Way: A Theology of Fullness for All of God's People, will be presented.

This course will meet on Tuesday nights at 7:30 pm CDT via video conference.

Rev. Justin Hancock is an ordained Deacon in the United Methodist Church and works as the Prior of the Epworth Project, a network of intentional Christian communities under the umbrella of the Missional Wisdom Foundation located in North Texas. Lisa Hancock has a Masters in Sacred Music and a Masters in Theological Studies, and is currently a PhD student in Systematic Theology at SMU. Lisa’s research focus is disability theology. Justin and Lisa are the co-founders of The Julian Way, an initiative of the Missional Wisdom Foundation focused on ministry and communal engagement with individuals and families with disabilities. In their off time, Lisa and Justin enjoy their mutual obsession with all things food-related, books, and the Chicago Cubs.
