Intro to Deaf Ministry: Methodology Part 3

Steve Dye writes his second post about methodology in Deaf ministry. Entitled Deaf Ministry 201: Why Deaf Worship Has to be Different, Steve gives a personal testimony on how methodology has helped him as a Deaf individual to worship the Lord and talks a bit about a Scriptural principle that should inform our methodology, especially where the Regulative Principle is concerned. An excerpt:

A pastor in Maryland that I recently spoke with said something that pretty much knocked some of my brain cells out and got me collecting them back up to rethink my strategy…in 1 Corinthians 10:23 it states “Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial” now I know that verse was talking along the lines of other things…but what this pastor was trying to indicate was that…visual aids are permitted only if we feel if it is beneficial to our worship experience.

In our preaching…it is beneficial. In our worship music…it is beneficial. In our sunday school classes…it is beneficial. In all that we do…any type of visual is beneficial…WHY? because most percentage of Deaf in today’s churches rely heavily on visuals.

As always, read the whole thing.

Darth Sinus has laid me low, so I won’t be doing any more posting til Monday, when I’ll finish talking about Deaf preaching.
