Thank you for featuring John Rodrigues’ neuropositive views on dyslexia, Aspergers/autism, and other neurodifferences. As an Aspie/autistic person myself, I find it refreshing to hear from other neuropositive, neurodivergent Christians. I also love Tony Campolo’s sermon on forgiveness and diversity.
Thank you for your kind words! We’re so glad you enjoyed this sermon and hope that you can continue to be encouraged. May God richly bless you today!
God loves you and so do we,
-Hour of Power Team
