On the programme this week ..... the similarities between Southwark Cathedral on the South Bank of the Thames and Cathedral Isle of Man in Peel might not seem instantly apparent - but they're there - and we explore them this morning in conversation with the Dean of Southwark Cathedral, the Very Reverend Andrew Nunn.
We'll also discover why he and two colleagues are here on the Island for a few days, and discover the powerful lessons to be learned from two cats, playing an important part in the ministry of Southwark Cathedral!
World Alzheimer's Month seeks to raise awareness and dispel the myths, the fear and the stigma surrounding all forms of dementia. It's these things which often make people reluctant to get a diagnosis, or ask for support. World Alzheimer's Month reminds us that support IS available for families affected by all forms of dementia, to help them take back control and face the future with more confidence.
This morning, we reach out to anyone touched by dementia, with a beautiful peaceful blessing written by priest and poet John O'Donohue, for his Mother, Josie, who had the illness.
There's our usual Notice Board, and a generous mix of music from Tom Paxton, Margaret Rizza, and the Huddersfield Choral Society.
