May is also ALS Awareness Month. ALS stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is 100% fatal. It may be more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Recently, my women’s fellowship group watched a DVD series entitled Ed’s Story. The series tells the wonderfully moving story of Pastor Ed Dobson’s battle with ALS. The series’ discussion questions provoked some deep and wonderful discussion and sharing within our small group. I highly recommend this DVD series.
Our church family includes someone who has recently been diagnosed with ALS so watching this series was particularly poignant and applicable.
