MetadataShow full item record
This qualitative study investigated the intersection of disabled individuals within Black churches and the examination of identity acceptability as it relates to physical and spiritual wholeness. The study interviewed 6 participants, exploring how disabled Black Christians perceived their disabilities, and attained normality in the Black church community as they strive towards achieving spiritual wholeness. In this study, participants expressed that their wholeness had to be redefined. In addition, I also explored the influence of song and scripture within this journey, the power of resilience in the Black Christian community, and the expectation of healing of those with invisible disabilities.
