Volume 38 | Issue 1 | Winter 2012 | “Spirituality: From Rights to Relationships”
In this issue, we present a strong collection of articles that truly offer a deep examination of spirituality, including stories from self-advocates. While people may express a favorable attitude toward an inclusive philosophy, it is the practice of inclusion that is of the most importance. Spirituality is no different, a number of religious organizations have “open door” policies, but ensuring that people with disabilities can participate is another matter. The point here is no to criticize policy, but to bring attention to the necessity of policy accompanied by authentic action to include.
