Unfortunately, I don't read sign language.  For those of you who do, this may be of interest:

I have to admit, the first thing I thought of was the Gumby yelling "COMPARATIVE RELIGION." laugh

But seriously, this is pretty cool. I don't read sign language either; I never got past the letters and numbers. My wife works with an interpreter, though, so maybe she can help.

This is cool.  It seems the young man in the video is involved in a project with the Armenian Church to do Bible studies for the deaf and hard of hearing and to make the liturgy more comprehensible for them:

http://www.armenianchurchwd.com/apn-divine-liturgy-for-faithful-with-hearing-disabilities/


Under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, Armenian Professionals Network (APN) representatives along with a number of our youth met on May 14, 2009 at the Diocesan headquarters to make plans on servicing the spiritual needs of the deaf and hard of hearing.  Participants included His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, Vahe Ashjian, Aida Tatiossian, Tigran Khachikyan, Lilit Khachikyan, and Melanie Tatiossian.  Arrangements are already being made to begin weekly Bible study sessions at the Diocese that will be taught by using American Sign Language.  Preparations are also under way to facilitate the comprehension of the Badarak to those who cannot hear.  An initial plan of action was drafted and an inventory of necessary materials and equipment were listed.  With the support of His Eminence, involvement of members of the APN, and input from our youth this noteworthy undertaking will ensure that the teachings of the Armenian Apostolic Church are extended beyond the mainstream to include community members with special needs.

^This is a noble undertaking.  I don't know much of ASL beyond numbers and letters.

A member of my parish is a speech pathologist and often works with hearing impaired kids.  At Agape Vespers she read the appointed parts of the Gospel while signing it.  Pretty darn cool.

May the Lord bless these efforts, as well as aiding a restored communion between all of the Orthodox churches!

In June he did another lesson, based on a book.  I think I know the book.  It's written for Sunday School teachers.
