Pastor Minamida and the church members at the Deaf church we attend are excited about the Sunday afternoon lesson time using the Socratic method discussion style learned from the Church-Based Theological Education curriculum. A couple of Deaf pastors are already seeking to adapt the curriculum to fit the needs of the Deaf community, and Pastor Minamida’s interest will be a big boost to them. Pray for wisdom as they seek to discern the teachings of scriptures and communicate them in culturally relevant ways to the Deaf community.
