A Joyous Lent to All! Please remember the suffering Christians of the Middle East in your prayers.
“On Saturday, March 21st, Three Hierarchs will host Rita Madden, a registered Dietician and Orthodox Christian, who will be presenting a “Food and Faith Workshop.”
Food & Faith Workshop: Eating for both Body and Spirit
Participants will learn how eating in a healthy and moderate way promotes a sense of contentment and satisfaction as well as health of both body and soul. While most conventional approaches to disease prevention and weight loss are focused exclusively on “dieting,” Madden encourages an alternative path, well-trodden by the spiritual masters of the Christian faith. She suggests that by following these spiritual principles, the physical benefits naturally follow. These benefits can include weight loss, lower blood pressure, decreased stress, and less dependence on medications.
As one workshop attendee has commented, “Rita’s Food and Faith Workshop was enlightening on so many levels. I’m looking at eating and health in a new way and finally feel like I can experience real, lasting change in my daily life that also enhances my spiritual walk. The workshop was interesting and even fun — it even included a ‘chocolate eating lesson!’” Participants will walk away with practical tools they can apply to their everyday life to care for body and soul alike.
