Dementia-friendly church service: Justice

Like most people, I’m grieving the events of the past week. And I struggled with how to put together a worship service that honors and balances the spiritual needs of those who are living with dementia — my primary audience — with the feelings of any seniors who are aware of what’s happening.

This week’s nondenominational worship service video focuses on Justice. I chose the theme long ago based on the calendar celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I hope it’s an honest but comforting message for the elders in your care, especially those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Watch the 48-minute church service here.

I want to give a grateful shout-out to my friend Gayll Phifer-Houseman, who gave an excellent video sermon last week for The River Church in San Jose, CA. (Want to watch it? Her sermon starts at 16:30 here). Her words of truth, hope, and our identity really helped inform my own video service this week.
