Many congregations we hear from are not ready to re-open, and therefore our inclusion resources remain important. This includes a list of resources from Disability Ministries, a list of ASL or captioned streams from Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Ministries, and guidance on inclusion: Online and Virtual Gatherings: Inclusion for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Members.
As some areas “open up,” we will continue to provide helpful information from reliable sources about what people who comprise the church can do to keep themselves safe and show their Christian love for others. We ask that you take the charge to love your neighbor seriously, without engaging in panic.
May 27: Places of Belonging: Using Our Heads, Hearts, and Hands to Overcome Social Divisions, a webinar conducted by Amy Julia Becker for University of Connecticut and Collaborative on Faith and Disabilities.
