You have not forgotten us: Towards a disibility-accessible church and society


Kunz, Ralph (2011). You have not forgotten us: Towards a disibility-accessible church and society. Journal of Religion, Disability & Health, 15(1):20-33.

Abstract

A vision is unfolded of the integration of people with dementia and their relatives. The argument is for the respect of the particular and thereby overcomes concepts of integration that either mean total inclusion or total separation. The article explores both the challenge and chance for the church that answer Jesus’ call for inclusion. Of particular importance is the sacramental dimension of faith; as in the Christian tradition, sacraments serve as symbolic bridges between the spiritual and the material that is conceivable by people with dementia.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
