Dementia-friendly church service: compassion (and a volume question)

This week’s updated (and now slightly shorter) worship service honors Mother Teresa, whose birthday was August 26, and her example of compassion. As ever, it’s suitable for older adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Watch the 44-minute church service on compassion here.

A question about video volume

Thanks to my YouTube subscribers who’ve messaged me about wonky sound — namely, that either the songs or the talking is way too loud. In trying to figure out the problem, this week I’ve reduced the volume on all of the hymns to 50%. Please let me know if this helps or not!

Peace be with you,

P.S. I forgot to add the written agenda for the compassion service; it’s here.

    All the watchers have to do is turn down the volume! You do a great job! Thank you so much!

      Thank you Jan! I’ve heard that the volume can be so variable that people have to be quick with the volume button so as not to blast people’s ears when a song comes on … hence my attempts to adjust it. I appreciate the positive feedback!
