Forgive the ignorance. I'm not familiar with deaf culture, needs, etc...yet. In our first service, we have 15-20 deaf folks who come. We have an interpreter (25+years experience...he's fantastic). We average 1-2 deaf folks per month with little or no church exposure...so it's a pretty significant outreach (we're the only church in a 20-mile radius to my knowledge to offer translation). For those of you involved with deaf folk, and/or deaf ministries... Is there a Bible version that would be the best to serve them during the service? (our pastor normally uses NIV, and that's in the pew...the deaf translation, of course, is ASL). Is there an "accepted" version that seems to be the norm with ASL-speaking folks? I may not be asking this correctly. Forgive me if that's the case. This is new ground for me. (And yes...I know one route I should go is to ask our interpreter. I will...we just don't see each other much on Sunday's, but I will ask him.) Please, guys...if you want to make this a versions debate....don't. Mods, if it goes there, kill the thread. Thanks!
