Next Thursday night St Pauls are holding a pastoral care evening on cancer. There's been a number of people diagnosed or know someone who has been diagnosed in the church this year and St Pauls pastoral team are holding this as a way to meet the needs of the people who want to know more.
This involves four people who will share on different aspects of cancer - namely, a medical perspective (that's mum talking!); what it's like to go through chemotherapy (that's me talking!); what it's like to lose a loved one to cancer, and a pastoral response to cancer. An open discussion time will follow the presentations.
Its bound to be a very interesting evening.
I'm busy working on what I'm going to say -there's a lot to say but getting it down on paper is proving a tad difficult. Hopefully it goes well!
