Ann's Spirituality Library October Article

Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s Disease abounds in our world and, perhaps, within your immediate family.  According to the Mayo Clinic, “6.5 million people in the United States age 65 and older live with Alzheimer’s disease. Among them, more than 70% are 75 years old and older. Of the about 55 million people worldwide with dementia, 60% to 70% are estimated to have Alzheimer’s disease.” It is likely that each of us knows or knew someone with Alzheimer’s Disease, are presently or were a caregiver to someone, or perhaps are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease. The author of this month’s highlighted book is Jade Angelica, a graduate of Harvard Divinity School with a Doctor of Ministry degree in Faith, Health and Spirituality from Andover-Newton Theological School.  

This is one of nearly 300 books covering a variety of spirituality topics to enrich your faith journey that is available in our church’s lending library in the parlor of Pilgrim House.  Please use the check-out notebook on the shelf to indicate your name, the name of the book, and the date that you are borrowing a book. Here is a look inside this month’s featured book!

May this book or others bring you valuable insights and comfort.  Happy reading!
