And God Said It Was Good: On Being
Faithful While Living With a Disability
Christina Cosby, Seminary Intern
Ms. Cosby is legally blind and deals with a rare chronic illness. In light of this, what does it mean to believe that God created all things good? We will explore how scripture and theology have shaped Ms. Cosby’s experience and enabled her to remain faithful to God’s call through limitations and chronic pain.
