Congratulations to the participants of the Get My People GOING!! program. You choose three areas of your life to improve and are working toward a more healthy lifestyle. May your journey toward wellness continue even though the program is over. Blessings on your journey.
The Health Ministry Team
Get My People GOING !!
This eight-week wellness program is designed for use by everyone in your congregation. The goal is to encourage all God’s people to have a healthy lifestyle. We realize that not everyone can run a marathon, not everyone can walk a mile, not everyone can get out of a chair. Yet everyone can find some way to make their lives healthier, be it through armchair exercises, drinking more water, or finding more time for prayer.
Some wellness programs presuppose that people need a health makeover. The fact is, however, that most people are doing quite well in some areas, and only need improvements in others. Nobody’s perfect, but most of us have some good health habits!
This program asks you to define your own barriers to good health practices. Do you need to exercise more and eat more fruits and vegetables? Or do you need to stop smoking and get more sleep? You are asked to focus on three areas of your choice to improve, and share your progress with a buddy. This booklet, and the notes you make on it, is for you alone to see.
Moses didn’t make it to the Promised Land, but he could see it. And so can we! Let’s get going in the direction of wholeness of body, mind, spirit, and community.
Blessings on the journey,
Rev. Dr. Deborah L. Patterson
