New PRIME film released - A Present Help in Trouble.

Image
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new PRIME film based on our Compassion Without Burnout Programme. The film was recorded from a global Zoom Webinar which included break out discussions in small groups. The current Covid crisis has enveloped everyone in a way that no one could have anticipated a year ago:   it has taken such a toll on all of us, not only on a global scale but also in the depths of our personal lives. This can be particularly true for those in the frontline of healthcare, because the compassion we give to our patients must surely have a vital influence on their journey through the crisis. The responsibility weighs heavy: the burden may become intolerable. How can we find the strength to cope? Can we live through the experience of feeling pushed beyond our limits? In this new film we will seek to explore the reality of these questions, to acknowledge and support each other in the journey, and to rediscover our hope and our calling for such a time as this

Stewardship of the Earth - PRIME International Email October 2021

Dr Rebecca Torry encourages us that we need to achieve  net zero greenhouse emissions  if we are to limit climate change  to a level which preserves our planet for the future... “The earth is the LORD’s and all that is in it,    the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas,    and established it on the rivers.”  1 Without sufficient action on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, we risk bringing disaster on ourselves.  The 26th UN climate change conference (COP26) will be meeting in Glasgow, Scotland, as this International Email reaches you. The challenges they face are huge.  The last decade (2011-2020) was the warmest on record. Rising temperatures are only a small part of the story. We are already seeing drought, severe fires, melting ice caps, floods, storms, and declining biodiversity. 2   The measures being taken now are insufficient. We need to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 if we are to limit climate change to a level which p

Wondering what we have been up to?

  Read our Summer 2021 Newsletter to find out more As we draw together the articles for this newsletter it is both impressive and humbling to consider that despite the huge impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic healthcare professionals continue to go above and beyond in service of the people they serve. Every day our news delivers a grim picture - if only they also chose to report on the commitment and dedication of the professionals involved as they show up day after day, often putting their own health at risk. We would therefore like to take a moment to thank God for the unsung and unrecognised heroes in healthcare systems working around the world. Many of our partners and tutors have been focused rightly on their local situation, we continue to hold them in our thoughts and prayers. Despite all of the difficulties of the last year the work of PRIME has continued both online teaching and behind the scenes developing teaching and other resources to help support tutors. We have all been p
