The lady who had her own church chair
Recently, I went to church while on vacation in Gulfport, Mississippi. At the end of a row of nice padded chairs was an older chair with arm rests, and a big sign fastened with transparent tape to the back of the seat.

I read the article and I really have to disagree with Dr. Bob Rogers, the author who said "...if you have a favorite seat at church, thatís fine. But if you can go get a lost person and give up your seat for him, thatís better." He clearly stated that he was told "she wanted the arm rests." As a person suffering with degenerative disk disease/arthritis/bone spurs, I can guarantee that armrests make all the difference when I try to rise from a chair (especially after sitting for an hour-long church service). Sometimes, "wanting" and "needing" are the same thing.

I understand the sentiment. However, we need to not make those with disabilities feel uncomfortable in attending church. I suggest if Dr. Bob Rogers give his home to the homeless and live under a bridge... Well you see what I am saying.
