News and notes from AMD, 22 May 2020


Here are the highlights of postings this week from the Association of Ministers with Disabilities, Disability Ministries Committee, Mental Health Ministries, Deaf and Hard-of-hearing Ministries Committee, and UM Congress of the Deaf.

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.

News and notes from AMD, 1 May 2020


Here are the highlights of postings this week from the Association of Ministers with Disabilities, Disability Ministries Committee, Mental Health Ministries, Deaf and Hard-of-hearing Ministries Committee, and UM Congress of the Deaf.

A note: we intend 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.

The Disability Ministries Committee has compiled a list of resources for inclusion during the outbreak; this is updated frequently. The UM Committee on Deaf and Hard-of-hearing Ministries has a list of ASL or captioned streams. Also, if you are streaming services, keep Deaf/HOH in mind. We have an updated blog entry that offers guidance: Online and Virtual Gatherings: Inclusion for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Members.
