In Western countries, people are living longer and spending more years of their life with an age-related disability like hearing or vision loss. The average person in a Western country will actually spend between 8-20 years of their life with some kind of disability. But despite that, disability is still treated like a marginal issue and not something that impacts everyone. Churches are no different which is why Louise Gosbell has become so passionate about this issue after being impacted by this in a personal way many years ago.
