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 list of inclusion resources is still important. This includes materials from Disability Ministries, Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Ministries, and Mental Health Ministries, and webinars and similar events that are announced on short notice. 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.
