News and notes from AMD, 12 June 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.

Whether a congregation remains closed, open limited or fully, 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. In all of these situations, we ask that you show Christian love for others: stay aware of safety and be aware of signs of trauma or other health concerns, and follow conference recommendations.

GCORR Real Talk: The General Commission on Religion and Race is continuing its Real Talk Series. The next video conversation is this Tuesday, June 16th at 3pm Eastern: Impact of Covid-19 on People with Disabilities. This will be a conversation with two faith leaders with disabilities (one is Deaf and signs) about how they've been impacted by COVID-19 with some insights to the wider community.
