News and notes from AMD, 24 April 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.
