The Body Speaks

It can be tempting to shut off our emotions, and experience life only through our minds. From ancient times to the present, people have propose this as a solution to our problems. Certainly, life seems easier without emotions, passions, or unwanted desires. Sometimes the body (with all its messy desires, inconvenient needs, and conflicting emotions) seems like the enemy of the tranquility of the soul.

But if we lock ourselves in our heads, how will we be able to, “Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, soul, mind, and strength”? And how can we truly “love thy neighbour as thy self”, if we have become a stranger to our own bodies?

I have been a missionary. I have been a pastor. I have been to seminary. Right now, I'm all about getting healthy, and caring for my family. The healthier I get, the closer I seem to get to God. ...and life seems to make more and more sense. It's working for me. Join me on my journey, if you would like.
