When Disability Hits Home

from Oct 05, 2012 Category: Ministry News

What happens when disability really hits home—when God hands you a challenge that tests your convictions in practical, heart wrenching ways?

The Sproul family was featured in an episode of “Joni and Friends” which offered a glimpse into the life of Shannon Sproul, daughter of R.C. Sproul Jr. and granddaughter of R.C. Sproul, who was born with a condition that left her profoundly disabled. This episode won a Silver Telly Award, which honors the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web.

Shannon Macfarlane Sproul went home to be with the Lord this past Wednesday. “Joni and Friends” have graciously allowed us to share with you the segment that featured Shannon. You will see how she brought challenges and blessings to her family, but most significantly, how through her life, God’s sovereignty, compassion, and tenderness were undeniably displayed.
