Sleep is an act of faith because we are actively accepting our humanity and putting at the foot of the cross all the aspects of life that cause us the greatest anxiety.
Body Image In the Image of God
In the places where our adolescents are given a narrow or shallow definition of an acceptable body, Jesus offers a message that is wider and deeper.
May these articles help point us all to Jesus, the one who longs to free us from the bonds of disordered relationships with food and our bodies.
Rather than food leading to prayer and love, God’s love, with prayer, enables us to eat restoratively, day after day, meal after meal.
My eating as a Christian is not aimed towards a particular body size, absence of nutrition-related disease, or zero food waste; rather, I live and eat to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
In his latest book, What God Has to Say About Our Bodies, Sam Allberry develops an accessible theology of embodiment for the church.
A rich theology of embodiment is particularly important for student ministers, whose focus on caring for others often lends itself to patterns of body-dismissal that are perhaps less God-honoring than we might imagine.
