We Know What We Should Eat!
If you have visited with us once, or been here for every Health and Wellness presentation for the Missional Community, I am confident you know what you should eat. Just as we know that Jesus gifts us salvation by believing in Him, and faith, without good works, is dead. James 2:14-26.
Today we explore a most nutritious and satisfying dish to prepare and eat.

Leap Year Health Wellness

Leap Year Saturday Afternoon Health Wellness

All Are Wecome to Our Table! 

Opening Springtime Theme Prayer
Springtime Prayer
For flowers that bloom about our feet,
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet,
For song of bird, and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
For blue of stream and blue of sky,
For pleasant shade of branches high,
For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
For beauty of the blooming trees,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

Presentation
Organic
Food sources
The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. While the regulations vary from country to country, in the U.S., organic crops must be grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers.
Organic livestock raised for meat, eggs, and dairy products must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products.
Benefits
How your food is grown or raised can have a major impact on your mental and emotional health as well as the environment. Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts and people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods.

    Benefits of Locally Grown Food
    Know Your Grower
    Freshness.
    Local food is harvested when ripe and thus fresher and full of flavor.

Closing Prayer

Hope of Spring
God, thank you for Spring and the hope of warmer, longer, brighter days.
Thank you for the coming of growth and life and birth.
Thank you that things are coming awake in the world.
This is what our calendar says, and we do see some signs that it is real.
But we also still struggle with the residual layover of winter.
Now we ask that you bring into reality all that belongs in this season.
Your word says that we will have provision, and hope, and joy, and health and loving relationships here and now in this life.
We ask that what belongs in this season would become actual in our practical lives.
We hope in you and in your promises. We hope in your gift of Spring. Amen. – adapted from Xavier.edu
