Mindfulness is a stress-reducing practice and a way of being that’s creating a huge buzz around our increasingly fast-paced world. Through the graciousness of a grant from the Florida Annual Conference of the UMC, this church is sponsoring a Mindful Living Initiative, a way to practice Mindfulness and the Ministry of Presence.
It allows us an opportunity to be still, so we can quiet our bodies, and clear our minds. Through calming mindful practices which include physical movement, Biblical meditation, guided relaxation and other centering practices.
