Children sign “I love you” at Makanisa School for the Deaf in Ethiopia.

Children sign “I love you” at Makanisa School for the Deaf in Ethiopia. The school was founded by missionaries from Churches of Christ who were looking for a way to serve underserved populations in Africa. Now Ethiopia sends government employees to the Church of Christ compound to learn sign language at the school.

My election year mantra: ‘Let me Listen’

 

“Listening is a lost art in 2024. Our postmodern world rejects absolute truth. If all truths are now equal, we make it our mission to pick a ‘truth’ that best suits us and to proclaim it as loudly as we can, drowning out all opposing voices — which we demonize as the ‘other.'”

Erik Tryggestad shares insight.
