The DVD is a moving witness to Hand in Hand’s unique spirituality, through their prayer, openness to God and to one another. It also provides a clear example of how the inclusion of people with learning disabilities in the life of the Christian community can enrich and enliven it. It is a powerful resource for the Church.
Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, who has encouraged Hand in Hand from their earliest beginnings, was very happy to be involved, contributing on the DVD itself, “What it means to the members (of Hand in Hand) is that they feel part of the wider community of the Church and instinctively they know they are contributing something valuable… something pleasing to God.”
The picture above shows some of the members of the Hand in Hand group.
A fuller story will appear in a future edition of the A&B News
