Rev Dr Kylie Crabbe is our guest for Thinking Theologically About… on February 29th. Kylie is a UCA minister and Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Catholic University. Her area of speciality is biblical studies, and area of interest and current research is the way we understand disability in the scriptures. Accordingly, Kylie’s topic with us will be:  ‘Biblical Disability and Its Discontents: Exploring Faithful Readings for the Whole People of God.

Kylie’s sessions will give the opportunity to Think Theologically about biblical texts that explicitly relate to disability, with some resources also from disability theology and other recent work from the disability sector. These questions take us beyond what it means to be an “inclusive” church, to what we imagine the church itself even is and our shared experiences of human limitation. There’ll also be the chance to share some handy resources in development for those who use the bible in worship and pastoral care, including on the history of interpretation (in art, music, literature, early Church sermons, etc) of biblical passages about disability. This “biblical reception” is another way of illuminating aspects of our own readings and assumptions.


Come along to the Centre for Theology and Ministry at 10.30 am. The session concludes at 12.30 when those who wish gather at Sage and Grace café for lunch.

You are welcome to attend remotely. You’ll receive a zoom link the night before the event.

See you there!
