She was not theologically instructed enough to discern very clearly the relation between the sacred documents of the past which she opened without method, and her own obscure, simple life; but the spirit of rectitude, and the sense of responsibility for the effect of her conduct on others, which were strong elements in Nancy's character, had made it a habit with her to scrutinize her past feelings and actions with self-questioning solicitude.

One of our children has been blessed experiencing the world as a member of the differently abled community and as such, sadly barriers are erected spiritually, physically, mentally, theologically and emotionally within church communities when it comes to "what it means to have these people invovled." We are all God's children and as a community, a body, we need to ask ourselves what it means to be Christ within our world, within our community, in spite of our differences, drawing the gospel circle wide for the inclusion of all, and stepping beyond our own self-imposed biases.
