WHAT INCLUSION MEANS

 

 

 

Radical Inclusion is not just a slogan. It does not mean simply 'tolerating' people who are different, or 'being nice'. True radical inclusion is more than a matter of tone. It means going beyond 'toleration' to celebration and affirmation of who a person is.

Radical Inclusion means seeing past race, or social status, or mental health, or age, or neurological difference, or poverty, or cleverness, or gender, or sexuality, or disability. Not just 'seeing past' but realising many of our differences are gifts in themselves to others.

Inclusion really is 'gift' for the local church. It is not just the recipient of inclusion who benefits: it is the church community as a whole. God's message is 'Come': come and live in community with Me, you are welcome, precious, valued for who you are, and who we become together.
