We include adolescents with disabilities not out of obligation or guilt, we do so because they are strangers just like us and Jesus modeled it for us. They are strangers who too often endure ridicule or silencing, isolation, and extra burdens that most of us could not imagine. They are seen as other, not part of the “in group.”
