Many of you who read Adventures In Autism will recognize this series that I wrote it last year for Autism Awareness Month. It is a look at autism through the lens of Matthew 25 and Jesus pronouncement that ‘what we do unto the least of these, we do unto Him’.
Autistic children are the lease of these, and this series was inspired by my own autistic son’s mistreatment at a former church. It is a series that has something for everyone, whether you are autistic, the parent of someone with autism, a friend or family member, or some one in authority in the church.
The Autism rate among children in this country is currently reported to be 1 in 150 and is climbing at a rate of 10% to 17% per year, so if you don’t know someone with autism, you will shortly.
I encourage you to read this and forward it to friends. The church must take seriously its call to serve the least of these, and all of us must measure our selves to see if our actions reflect a heart that is concerned with those who are struggling in this world. Because that is the measure that Christ uses in Matthew 25 to see who really belongs to Him and who doesn’t.
