Reconsidering Labels Around Disability

This reflection can be used with Topher Endress's video "Disability as Diversity" either individually or in a group setting.


  • Does assigning a label to someone decrease our ability to recognize the image of God in them?
  • In what ways do labels limit our understanding of diversity?
  • How many of the labels we use for people are based on arbitrary standards? Why are we so attached to social norms? How can we actively think outside of social norms?
  • How can we acknowledge our differences in ways that honor them?
  • What can we do to catch our own use of labels? How can we lovingly hold our communities accountable for harmful ways we use labels?
