Sunday Forum, December 10

“For as long as I am able, I intend to continue my ministry as a preacher and teacher. I also want to raise awareness and advocate for quality care for people living with thinking problems. I want to show the world that people with dementia are individuals and not caricatures of a disease. I believe that denial isn’t useful, honesty is important, early diagnosis can result in a higher quality of life, and transparency makes life easier for everybody involved." The Very Rev. Tracey Lind

The Very Rev. Tracey Lind, an Episcopal priest, author, and photographer was diagnosed with early onset dementia in November 2016.

In this forum, Tracey continues the conversation about living with dementia that began with her first forum on October 22nd. Although in the early stages of this disease, she made the decision to step down from her position as Dean of Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland. Nevertheless, she continues to exercise a vital ministry, sharing with others what she has learned about spirituality, vocation and daily living in coming to terms with her illness.

Whether you attended the forum in October or not, this discussion will speak to anyone dealing with dementia – those living with it, care partners, family members, colleagues or friends.

Sunday December 10, 9:45am at the American Cathedral in Paris, Fleetwood Room.


Our weekly Sunday Forum is an opportunity to discuss and explore topics ranging from politics to spirituality, economics, and literature with fascinating speakers and other interested individuals.
