Abstract

This article considers the indispensable nature of those who seem weaker expressed in 1 Corinthians 12:22 and applies the idea as a parallel allusion to persons with disabilities within the Body of Christ. References are made to Paul’s connection of power to weakness and people perceived as weak whether real or not. The reader is encouraged to consider the inclusion of those perceived to be weaker in the church because their presence is described as indispensable to the church.
