Midnight in Chicago

I found this podcast/blog this morning. 

which is a number of podcasts about various issues relating to autism. most interesting to me was the podcast called:
Autism on the Homefront: Parenting Autistics

The casters mention research pointing to research that is uncovering that autism has genetic links. 
So things like Chelation Therapy (which is to try to remove heavy metals from the body) probably aren't going to be to affective if autism spectrum disorders aren't caused by environmental issues.

Autism and Faith: A Journey into Community

Here's an interesting story of a 13 year old autistic boy who was banned (even to the point of a restraining order) from church.

That led me to another find Autism and Faith: A Journey into Community which I would love to get a look at.

Looking at my church, I wonder what would happen if a boy like Adam Race and his parents showed up to worship. I would hope that the reaction wouldn't be the same. But does my (or your) church have a plan for providing for the needs of a boy like Adam? Would it be inclusive or would you provide a separate space?

I am a bad blogger

I have tons more inbound blogging than outbound. I have like 100 feeds I check for updates everyday, but I post (or even comment) maybe once a month.

hey we're half way through 200-8... time to start new... (8= new beginnings right?)

I will try to blog at least once a week and see where things go.
