Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina – the same group that brought to us the Maintain, Don’t Gain Holiday Challenge – has developed health-related bulletin inserts for the faith community. These inserts provide short, easy-to-read messages on a variety of health topics such as asthma, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease and stroke.
Our scriptures teach that our bodies are God’s temple (I Corinthians 3:16) and that we are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1). Unfortunately, many of our brothers and sisters are suffering from chronic illnesses that could be prevented or controlled by getting the recommended amount of physical activity; eating healthy, well-balanced meals; and not using tobacco products. It is my prayer that the health-related bulletin inserts will serve as an invaluable resource for clergy and congregants as we seek to live an abundant life of health and wholeness (John 10:10).
