JOIN THE TOMMY FOUNDATION AND JONI AND FRIENDS FOR A GLIMPSE INTO THE WORLD OF DISABILITY ON SATURDAY, OCT. 15TH, 2016.
“Bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, the lame…and compel them to come in so that my house will be full.” ~ Luke 14.
The quote above is one that the organization Joni and Friends of Eastern Pennsylvania wants to help our community observe while interacting with their new exhibit entitled “Finding The Forgotten”. This exhibit offers the viewer a glimpse into the world of different kinds of disabilities–including Autism–through a 30 minute multi-sensory experience.
I had the opportunity to experience this exhibit before its grand-opening to the public and was so impressed and touched by what I experienced that I instantly set up a time so that families and community members we serve can join me in experiencing it together. The opportunity to get this glimpse into the world of various disabilities via stories from individuals themselves and their families and guided meditation will benefit anyone that wants to get a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world of the differently abled and their families and reflect on ways that we can work together and to form a deeper connection with one another.
If you are interested in attending our Tommy Foundation day together at the exhibit, which is Saturday, Oct. 15th from 10am-1pm, please sign up via this link:
We are allowed to have a maximum of 30 people going through the exhibit at a time and it takes approximately 30 minutes to go through the exhibit. At this point I am collecting the names of those interested in attending first and we can assign specific times later if we have a lot of interest.
