Lifewords: OUTSIDE/IN

Exploring the Christmas story in a way that's accessible for all

Christian charity Lifewords has launched a free booklet resource OUTSIDE/IN to help churches and individuals experience the Bible’s Nativity story in ways that are accessible to all.

Partnering with Livability’, Biblica’ and Torch Trust’, this illustrated booklet and accompanying resources have been designed to extend access to the Bible for people who are non-hearing, visually impaired, and who have a lower reading age. Created by Lifewords to help people share the Bible as good news, it also provides a challenge for churches to welcome those marginalized in their own communities. 

OUTSIDE/IN re-tells the story from the perspective of those often considered to be outside the mainstream. The shepherds, Mary and Joseph, the sages – all resonate with how contemporary society relates to those who are excluded or at the margins. Yet all outsiders’ are drawn in to the heart of this Christmas story. 

The Christmas story welcomes everyone. We wanted to help people experience this for themselves this Advent season”, says Matt Currey, Lifewords’ UK development manager.
