Jesus, the Disabled Empath: A Good Friday Reflection

By Raedorah C. Stewart

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed into the Heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast to our profession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

I See You

By Elrena Evans

The week school began this year, I was chatting with one of the therapists at my son’s elementary school. She asked who his teacher was for second grade, and when I told her, she smiled.

“Can’t They Just Read the Bible?”

By Carole Brenton
“They can’t hear, but they’re not blind. Can’t they just read the Bible?” I get this often when I speak to groups of hearing people, who ask me questions that those serving in a spoken-language context would never be asked.
