Sample text

Such an encounter confronts us with human helplessness and human vulnerability, with people who remind each one of us of how easily memory and self-awareness can be snatched away. Fear is overcome by compassion and that requires enough imagination to walk in another’s shoes. If people with dementia are to be accorded informed, holistic care, those responsible for their spiritual health must take that seriously. Listening to the music The demographic ageing trend Worldwide there are approximately 600 million people aged 60 years and older.

The scapegoat’s role was to distance the people from their sin. Often this is our society’s attitude towards those with Alzheimer’s disease. People with dementia are stigmatised, marginalised, pushed to the edges of society, and they alone are expected to bear the responsibility for the disintegration of the relationship between themselves and the rest of us.

Peterson urges ordained ministers to give themselves primarily to the purpose of their ordination. The Church sets aside some of its people and ordains them in order to extract from them a vow that that is exactly what they will be about, namely word, sacrament and pastoral care. This is the promise to which ordained ministers are committed. Their people may most likely forget this and insist upon the ordained person doing many other things to keep the congregation together and out of debt. Some of the things they insist upon, the ordained person will do – but only insofar as his or her main ministry functions (word, sacrament and pastoral care) permit.
