Stroke Survivors in our Worshiping Communities
This workshop presents an ethnographic study describing the experiences of stroke survivors in their church communities and two worship services planned for these participants.
Stroke survivors usually receive excellent support from their churches during the "crisis" time immediately after their stroke. People visit, bring food, and pray for them. But upon returning home, most stroke survivors must learn to deal with new challenges that affect their entire lives, they may even have physical and linguistic challenges that affect their experiences in worship services. As a group, participants will discuss future possibilities for planning worship with stroke survivors.
