I work as a chaplain with people with intellectual disability in a church based agency which provides lifestyle support for people who have moved from institutions to community living. In my work I support people in spiritual distress. This presentation will consider the stories of people with disability who struggle with conceptual Christian beliefs. It will also highlight the need for keeping metaphors grounded in reality. Ethical considerations of embodiment and embeddedness will be explored.
