The Body Cadre
Students come to a relevant and interactive cadre answering questions like: How does God view the body? What worth does He see in the body? How does He use the body as a tool to teach, strengthen, and change us? "The Body Cadre" will meet 1-1:50 on Thursdays in Demaray Hall 259. We will spend every other week listening to faculty, staff, and community members share what God has taught them about their body from their own unique perspective of Athlete, Mother, Former Anorexic, Artist, Wife, Musician, Dietitian, Author, Missionary, or Professor. The guest speakers are going to share their life experiences with insight and encouragement. On the weeks without a guest speaker we, as a group, will discuss what was shared the week prior with some facilitated discussion by Julie Church, campus Dietitian. All are invited and all will gain perspective on the body from participation in this Cadre. Join us week one or week nine. We look forward to seeing you there!
