SYLLABUS FOR WINTER SESSION     2018

Class 1 January 16th

WELCOME AND INTRODUCTION.  We will discuss the foundational principles of the session, and also have some interactive discussion about what makes a great small group. We’ll get to know one another a bit, and read through the syllabus so everyone knows what to expect moving forward. There is no requirement to attend after this class, rather just opportunity to see if it is for you!       Romans 12:2

Class 2  January  23rd

Foundations, goal setting, the triad, & small steps to eating well for life! We’ll review the Foundational principles along with each of our responsibility to make this group great. We will explore the desires of our hearts, and where we have a “divine dissatisfaction”

with the way some things are. We’ll bring those things into prayer and goal setting. There will be time allotted for those who wish to share what their goals are and to have the group assist with clarity if necessary.  We will learn the 3 basic things we must do to begin the journey towards obtaining optimal physical health and wellbeing. We will begin to keep food journals to obtain a baseline to see what we really put in our bodies so we can assess strengths in our diet, and what we ought to change. We’ll discuss why diets don’t work in the long run and how we can choose to not be “on a diet” again. We’ll talk about foods  that nourish our bodies and promote good health. Corinthians 6:19-20                                    Romans 12:1
