Envisioning a world where the Deaf community participates equally and fully in the Body of Christ.
The Lutheran Friends of the Deaf provides resources, instruction and support services to the global Deaf community for access to the Word of God, so that they will receive forgiveness, life and salvation in Jesus Christ.
The Church Interpreter Training Institute has been training interpreters for more than 30 years so that Deaf people can have access to the Word of God and the Body of Christ as it gathers together on Sundays or other times during the week for worship or church related activities.
Concepts to be explored during this workshop are: Interpreter as Theologian and the Trinitarian God Box. The workshop will consist of lecture/discussion as well as ‘hands on’ interpreting of texts in the university chapel.
Students will grow in their understanding of their role as a church interpreter and Biblical theologian; learn how to use the gloss of the materials for Biblical texts; and grow in their understanding and confidence in interpreting in a complex liturgical setting.
Attendees should bring a notebook and English translation of the Bible. Please also bring a brown bag lunch; snacks & water will be provided.
Please register by February 7th.
This workshop is in co-operation with Mill Neck Interpreter Service. Mill Neck Interpreter Service is an approved RID CPM sponsor for continuing education activities.
LFD will travel to Hong Kong and Macau to visit the Hong Kong Lutheran School for the Deaf and to support Concordia School for Special Education (formerly St. Paul Lutheran School for the Deaf) for their graduation ceremony. LFD will also visit a Deaf Center as well as meet with Deaf Lutherans. Additionally, this trip will be used to set up the fall mission trip when Deaconess Diana Rice, who is Deaf, will teach classes at the schools about serving Deaf students and teaching them God’s Word in the Bible.
