Embodied Spirituality

Pastor Bo came to speak on the topic of Embodied Spirituality. Christ’s Ministry was always to provide holistic health treating the whole person physically, emotionally and spiritually. In essence care for the body, mind and spirit. In the programs Health Ministry has provided to date physical and emotional health have been the dimensions we have addressed. So we recognized that Spiritual dimension being central to achieving holistic care.
