“We now have a critical mass available in which to generate a Gospel of Fitness with the best insights from all the helping professions.”
“The Gospel of Fitness is not a replacement for the traditional Gospel of the Newer Testament. Nor is it yet a formal theology. It has elements of both, however, for it is “good news” in a health-challenged society. And its rationale is based upon responsible disciplines of body-mind-spirit, respect for each other, and ecological stewardship.”
“For body- mind-spirit fitness is not about diet fads, exercise gimmicks, marathons, or beauty. Rather, it is about being the best that we can be.”
These quotes are taken from an article by G. Lloyd Rediger that appears in a column on his site. As it is not a short article, you may want to set aside time to read this when you can appreciate Rediger’s insight and wisdom.
Have an awesome day!
