There isn’t anyone in the world who God has used more than Joni Eareckson Tada for families experiencing disability in the church. And she has stood against some of the great cultural evils of our day as well – abortion and embryonic stem cell research to name just two.
So I was thrilled to hear that she will receive The Wilberforce Award, named to honor the memory of William Wilberforce who spent his life battling the evil of slavery.
Here is Chuck Colson’s overview of the award and why Joni was chosen to receive it this year.
Congratulations, Joni! God is very kind to have given you to families like ours!
