Quote for the week:
Being a ‘Mender’, an activist for an inclusive society, is a spiritual discipline… t he spirituality of turbulent times. Working to alleviate suffering is the way we practice our faith. We try not to act from anger or fear. We act because, in this life we have been given, we believe we can help make things better. Acting out of compassion to lessen suffering and improve the lives of others is the way we celebrate the Spirit. Each of our acts, however small, brings us joy, satisfaction and power.
Sharif Abdullah

A new initiative started by Sally Magnusson - Playlist for life – is hoping to set up locally. Several churches are involved in a pilot program, and with 1 or 2 volunteers, we could join in. It uses music to engage and involve those with dementia. Training is provided and the commitment is possibly one evening a month. See your elder for information
