  • In the Media, Christian Institute on Disability

Girl serving through the CIDWe see headlines about birth defects, tragic accidents or surgeries gone wrong with the declarations that these lives should be ended because, “No one would want to live like this!” Human life can now be altered, aborted, cloned and euthanized, sometimes even against the will of family and loved ones. As Christians, we are called to make a difference in this brave, new and dangerous world. Through our Joni and Friends Christian Institute on Disability (CID) we strive to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Since 2007, the mission of the CID has been to impact the Church, Christian and public institutions, and societies with a biblical worldview and life-giving truth on issues pertaining to life, dignity, justice and equality that affect people with disabilities. You now have a new way to network with the CID through social media. Whether you're an alumni of a CID internship program, or you've completed our groundbreaking Beyond Suffering courses, join us on Facebook...

Joni’s Statement On “Alone Yet Not Alone” Oscar Nomination Being Rescinded

Joni at the microphone“While I can only imagine the disappointment of music writer Bruce Broughton and lyricist Dennis Spiegel in the rescinding of their Oscar nomination, it in no way detracts from either the song’s beauty or its message. I was humbled and honored to have been asked to sing it for the film, and was as surprised as anyone when I learned of the song’s nomination. I was grateful for the attention the nomination brought to this worthy song and the inspirational film behind it, as well as to the ongoing work of Joni and Friends to people affected by disabilities. The decision by the Academy to rescind the nomination may well bring even further attention, and I only hope it helps to further extend the message and impact of the song. Regarding the reasons for the nomination being rescinded, it is not my place to speculate as I have no insights into the workings of the entertainment industry. I was honored to be invited to sing the song and it will always be a treasured experience.”

Joni and Friends 35th Anniversary logoWorldwide, one in every seven people lives with a disability. In many nations, these people and their families face crushing poverty, social stigma, and isolation. They lack so much – even wheelchairs. At Joni and Friends, we are keenly aware we must do all we can to reach the world’s disability community with the Gospel of Christ, and to serve them with practical help. That’s why, for 35 years, we have partnered with you to fulfill Christ’s mandate from Luke 14: to go out, find the disabled, the lame and the blind, and bring them in so that the Father’s house might be full. Your prayers and gifts are fueling this remarkable movement of compassion – it’s reaching children and families across the globe. Thank you for being a part of our ministry at...

*Update: Oscar Nomination Rescinded

Oscar nominations were announced today and “Alone Yet Not Alone” is nominated for Best Original Song. I had the honor of singing this original song in the movie of the same name (the video includes scenes from the movie and video clips from my recording session). I hope you have a chance to see Alone Yet Not Alone when it comes to a theater near you – it’s a beautiful film with a strong Christian theme. By the way, I doubt I'll be performing the song at the Oscars, but please be praying that God’s purposes will be fulfilled when the global spotlight shines on this lovely song on March 2nd for all the world to see!
