‘Signing for the Savior’ to resume

Senior Education Ministries Inc., in partnership with Terre Haute United Methodist Temple, will resume “Signing for the Savior” classes on Thursdays, beginning Oct. 17, with instructor Patty Christy.

“Signing for the Savior” is a free educational program where sign language is done to music as a form of praise and worship. There is also a great need for those who can hear to learn how to communicate with the hearing-impaired.

The class will meet from 4 to 5:30 p.m. each Thursday in the United Methodist Temple at 5301 S. U.S. 41. A weekly love offering will be taken. Participants will learn how to sign traditional and contemporary songs of worship.

New students must call Patty Christy at 812-249-8688 for sign up information.

Service set on Day Against Death Penalty

World Day Against the Death Penalty (Oct. 10) will be observed at 10:30 a.m. Sunday in First Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 1875 S. Fruitridge Ave.

Since 1961, the UUA General Assembly has passed five general resolutions calling for the abolition of the death penalty.

The service will include Journey of Hope … from Violence to Healing, an organization led by victims’ family members that conducts public education speaking tours and addresses alternatives to the death penalty.

“Storytellers” from all walks of life recount tragedies and their struggles to heal as a way of opening dialogue on the death penalty in schools, colleges, churches and other venues.

The Journey spotlights victims’ family members, but storytellers also include the wrongfully convicted and families of people on death row.

Speakers will include Bud Welch and Randy Steidl.
