Lake Union Herald: Following the Light

My first encounter with Ray McAllister was via e-mail. I knew he was completely blind so when an e-mail written by Ray and sent by Ray popped into my Inbox, I was a bit surprised. He doesn't even let something like sight keep him from typing a perfectly spelled and grammatically-correct e-mail, I thought to myself. But his typing skills aren't what set Ray apart from his peers. Ray is the first blind student to ever graduate from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary and, according to the Society of Biblical Literature and National Federation for the Blind, perhaps the first completely blind person to ever tackle a degree so heavily dependent upon biblical languages, including Akkadian, Hebrew, Greek and even Cuneiform. Read full story.
