WORSHIP WITH SIGN LANGUAGE
Mt Vernon Church is blessed to have so many musical people to help lead worship with singing, ringing bells, and playing various instruments. Hopefully, many of you have noticed Laura Y., who willingly gets up during a song and uses her gift of sign to enhance the worship even more. Like dance, the beauty of movement in sign language has enormous emotional appeal and can bring tears to our eyes. Laura is not exactly a brave upfront kind of person, but she allows herself to bring the focus on Jesus when she uses her hands, her expressions and God’s inspiration to reach out. Watching her sign helps us experience God in a new fresh way. Watching her makes me realize that signing is not just for the deaf community, but it is a beautiful expression of worship for everyone to embrace. I hope the next time she is signing for a song, you can look away from the words, and watch as her hands so gracefully tell the story. I would like to thank Laura, from all of us at Mt Vernon, for her willingness to stand up and praise the Lord with sign!
With grateful hearts,
