After years of silently struggling with social anxiety and sensory processing issues, Dr. Lamar Hardwick was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at the age of 36. This week, we’re going to talk about his book, “Disability and The Church: A Vision for Diversity and Inclusion.”

In this episode, Dr. Hardwick and Robrenna talk about:

- Dr. Hardwick’s story and the earliest signs of his personal experience with autism spectrum disorder
- How he came to be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder late in life
- How the church has fallen short in inclusion and support for those who are differently abled
- The parable of the banquet and what it can teach the church regarding loving the differently abled
- Practical steps churches can take to make adjustments for differently abled members
