Caring for the Whole Person: Mind, Soul and Body

Summer’s coming, and some of us— especially those who live by the rhythms of the school calendar — are already looking forward to “crashing,” but if “crashing” turns out to be nothing more than the oversleeping, overeating, and overindulging that knocks us off our healthy habits, puts us in a slump, and makes us feel lousy, we may find ourselves worse off than when we started! Why not get ahead of the game this year and prepare for a truly rejuvenating summer of self-care of the mind, body and soul? That’s what the MidWeek Fellowships in April are all about! Be sure to come to the Parlor on April 25th, then we’ll back in the Fellowship Hall on May 2nd for our final MidWeek Fellowship of the spring. Take a look and plan to be with us each week!
