BIBLICAL SECRETS TO HEALTH & NUTRITION
RiversideCascais
tbc tbc
With conventional medicine as our standard of care the medical system fails to help us look at the root cause of a lot of the 21st century diseases and instead prescribes medication to mask our symptoms. Although medicine is helpful we often forget that God gave us a powerful tool called food to help us live healthy lives. As we look at the Bible over 4 sessions we will have round table discussions and look at what God's word and current scientific research says about diet, longevity and the 4 pillars of health: food, sleep, movement and stress levels. If our bodies are really the temples of the Holy Spirit doesn't the physical count?

NAMES OF GOD
Cascais
WED 20h00 - 21h30
In the Jewish mindset a name is not merely an arbitrary designation, a random combination of sounds. The name conveys the nature and essence of the thing named. It represents the history and reputation of the being named. One of the best ways to get to know God on a deeper level is to know His names and titles as they are revealed in Scripture. If you are interested in more information about the meaning of the names of God join this Life Group.
