Neurodiversity and Faith
The diverse and complex realities of humanity are an incredible gift that God has given us. We are surrounded by incredible difference in physicality, culture and connection. So too, we are surrounded by the incredible diversity of the human brain. Whether our brains work in a neurotypical fashion or we see the world through the lens of autism, adhd, or other neurodivergent lenses, we seek to connect to each other and to God.
Here at Flame of Faith United Methodist church we are dedicated to sharing God’s love and welcoming all people into God’s family. To this end, we’ve been seeking to learn, as a leadership and as a worshipping community what it means to invite and welcome all into worship. How can we shift and lead worship in ways that share God’s love?
Comfort in Worship and Activities:
