Health Through Faith and Community: A study resource for Christian faith communities to promote personal and social well-being
This book, with handouts, was funded by the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund (UMHMF). The curriculum contains eight study sessions which can be used independently or together as a multi-week class. The book provides information and learning activities on the physical, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental aspects of health from an ecumenical Christian perspective. The study guide is designed as an instructor resource, containing handouts and worksheets which may be copied and distributed to class participants. Complimentary copies are available to Kansas churches (of all denominations) while supplies last.
