Was getting in shape mentally and physically one of your New Year’s Resolutions? Are you hoping to find greater focus on God and His purpose for you? Are you ready to connect with others in exploring a new path to better health and a better life? Then join us in The Daniel Plan.
The Daniel Plan is a practical six-week program for people to restore their health and ultimately prepare them to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives. More than just another “diet”, its a lifestyle based on the biblical story of Daniel, who forsook the king’s rich food and way of life in order to honor God and do what was best for him and his friends. Originating from Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church, the Daniel Plan was created with the help of experts Drs. Mehmet Oz (cardiology – yes, THAT Dr. Oz), Daniel Amen (psychiatry), and Mark Hyman (functional medicine) – of different faiths and medical backgrounds. It addresses the Whole Person and is based on the five pillars of health: faith, food, fitness, friends, and focus.
Beginning Sunday, March 10, Suffolk Presbyterian Church will offer a special Lenten study centered around The Daniel Plan. In addition to weekly sermons inspired by Daniel, there will be a 40-day, small group DVD study. Using video and workbook discussions, the meetings will provide fellowship, inspiration, instruction, and useful tips. Each week will bring a different theme, with practical “next steps” to move forward. The study is open to the public, so feel free to invite friends. Afterall, every body needs a buddy, as lifestyle changes are best made within community. Check the Narthex for handouts and a signup sheet. We are also looking for individuals who would like to be a part of the Coordinating Team. See Maryanne Persons for details and more information.
