Thanks for stopping by the forums. I hope that this discussion board will become a place where people can come to meet others, share stories of inspiration, express concerns or anything else in the area of religion, disability and spirituality. However, for this to be a useful resource- it will need your help. Please take a moment to introduce yourself and tell us a little about yourself. I'll begin: My name is Christopher Phillips, my wife and I have one little boy who just turned two and another on the way in March. I am a religion instructor for high school aged youth with disabilities. My interest in this area stems from my experiences two of my younger brothers who were born with Down syndrome. I also have an interest in using the Internet to connect people with common interestsand share resources and created this site to do just that around an interest that I have- the intersection of religion, disability and spirituality.
