Christian Society for the Deaf (CSD) officers in the Ecclesiastical District of Quezon City spearheaded a painting activity on August 28, 2023. Held in the Quezon City District conference room, the said activity served as their get-together event with the brethren who are deaf.
According to experts, the deaf are twice as likely to suffer from depression and anxiety as a result of isolation or communication barrier with those around them (disabilityexpertsfl.com).
“Through activities like this, brethren who are deaf not only get to share their unique talents, such as in painting, but also spend some bonding time with other Church members, Deaf and hearing alike,” said Brother John Bryner Case, CSD district adviser.
The event began with a meet-and-greet among the attendees. CSD officers took the opportunity to introduce themselves through Sign Language to the Deaf brethren. Afterwards, the attendees began painting their artwork that presented a Church-related theme of their choice.
According to Brother Case, “Activities such as this prove the great love and concern of the Church Administration for the welfare of all Church members, without any exception, in making sure that all would be able to remain active in serving God until all of us attain salvation.” — With reports from Quezon City District Multimedia
