"Being Hope"

Sunday, May 20, 2012, Church Service: 10:30am

Rev. Jade Angelica, Preaching

Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson, 80 Main Street, Hudson, MA  01749

All are welcome.  For more information, call: (978) 562-9180

Service Description:

“Being Hope” by Rev. Jade C. Angelica

As a tribute to the many members of our congregations who are caregivers to spouses, parents, relatives and friends suffering with Alzheimer’s and other diseases of dementia, the service on May 20 will acknowledge the role and wisdom of caregivers and focus on caregiving and hope. 

It is spiritually challenging to embrace the concept of hope within the context of Alzheimer’s disease – a degenerative, terminal illness, that for over 100 years has eluded the discovery of both cause and cure.  The service will explore various definitions and examples of hope, helping us to realize that caregivers can offer hope and provide healing to afflicted loved ones.  We can make a difference in the lives of persons with Alzheimer’s and dementia; and they can make a difference in our lives. 

There will be an opportunity to honor and remember our loved ones with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
