Thought for Today

“For all of us in this world, there is a purpose.  None of us is less valuable than the others.  Value just takes a different form.  We are all God’s children.  We are all special. — Ralph Showers [Source:  Reach for the Rainbow]

Many summers ago I had the honor of attending a conference on disability ministry at Green Lake Conference Center in Wisconsin led by Rev. Ralph Showers.  Ralph is kind of like the energizer bunny, he just keeps going and going.  It was hard to keep up with what seemed like his endless source of energy.  It was a wonderful week of fun, fellowship and learning with conference participants from across the U.S. and Canada.  I suggest you find a copy of his book Reach for the Rainbow that tells his personal story as well as the story of his ministry.  You will be blessed. When Ralph says we are all God’s children, we are all special, I believe him.

  1. This is a great quote. I was just privileged to perform the funeral of a believing brother who pioneered the way for people with disabilities in our church. Philip had Downs Syndrome. He used what God gave him to help our church learn love for those with disabilities.
