I stumbled across a graphic the other day on Facebook while looking at the OT Toolbox Facebook page that made me stop scrolling.

This performance actually started about 15 years ago under a different ministry. It used to be performed at a local city's community tree-lighting event.

Taste & See The Rainbow Activity

Create a Masterpiece

Create a Masterpiece
I will be honest. When I look in the mirror I don’t often say, “Wow! That dude is a masterpiece!” I can easily get down on myself for not looking like, or feeling like, a work of art. Good thing that God doesn’t see in me all the things that I get hung up on. […]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Disability?

The classic 1964 claymation film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has so many parallels to real-life situations for individuals with disabilities. Some are truly cringeworthy moments that I never picked up on as a child watching this movie during every holiday season. Let’s recap a few and see what we can learn! I promise you will […]

Disability Ministry is a Thermostat Ministry

There is an obvious difference between a thermometer and a thermostat. A thermometer tells the temperature of the room while a thermostat not only tells you the temperature but also can change the temperature in a room. In churches, there are both thermometer and thermostat ministries. Thermometer ministries reveal or expose the health of the […]

The Grinch Misunderstood

Growing up one of my favorite Christmas stories and TV specials was How The Grinch Who Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss. There was always something about the Grinch that loved. Maybe it was his cute dog, his mischievous spirit, or the whole redemption story angle thing. Now reading it as an adult for the one-millionth […]
