Iliff on the Road: Prof. Debbie Creamer, Boston College
Description: Debbie Creamer, Iliff interim dean, vice president for academic affairs, and director of the Ira J. Taylor Library, will lead a workshop, “More than Elevators: Physical Disability and the Church,” a 21st Annual Pyne Memorial Presentation, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. The workshop will explore how churches might move beyond initial questions of access and think more fully of people with disabilities as equal participants in congregational life. By examining theological assumptions about disability and our ideas of what it means to be “normal,” new possibilities will emerge for congregational worship, teaching, leadership, pastoral care, and community life.
Professor Creamer’s presentation is sponsored by the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry and generously supported by the Pyne Endowment Trust in memory of Professor Margaret E. Pyne, a lifelong advocate for persons with disabilities.
Date: Friday, March 1, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
