Health & Wellness Ministry
Until you go to heaven to be with your Creator, all of you - mind and body is still a work-in-progress. Martin Luther said, "This life, therefore, is not godliness, but the process of becoming godly, not health, but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way." You are on a journey of wellness. and wellness means maintaining balance in all aspects of life - spiritual, physical, emotional, social, intellectual and vocational.
The Wellness Wheel provides a picture of this process. It reminds us that being well is about being in balance and that wellness begins as you are claimed by Christ through the waters of Baptism.
Throughout the year we will be examining the six components of wellness to create an awareness of their importance in our lives.
May I encourage you to stay sensitive to your life's balance and to be a good steward of your health and wellness. Martin Luther said, "The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed."
We are all saved through the redemptive power of Christ. May God give you the grace and strength to persevere until that day we will all gleam and sparkle. May this blessing give you joy and energy along your journey of wellness!
