  7. Living a Healthful Life Part of that example includes taking care of our health—we believe God calls us to care for our bodies, treating them with the respect a divine creation deserves. Gluttony and excess, even of something good, can be detrimental to our health. Ellen White 7

  8. Live a vibrant life! 8

  9. PURPOSE We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about. Charles Kingsley, Bits & Pieces , December 9, 1993, p. 16.

  10. Heal First, Ask Questions Later (Luke 22:49-51 ) 10

  11. We've become so intellectually proud of what the human mind can achieve [the best & the brightest], we tend to marginalize individuals who work with their hands, their feelings, perhaps even with their souls? As leaders, I believe one of our most important jobs is to shorten the distance between the mind and the heart.

  14. “My hopes for this place are high. The country for miles and miles around Washington is to be worked from here. Were Christ here upon the ground, He would say, “Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, for they are ready to harvest.” Ellen G. White June 15, 1904 (Written from Takoma Park.) 14

  15. Early beginnings of Washington Adventist Hospital Ø Boston physician had owned original property with plans to develop medical facility. Ø Church Leaders from Battle Creek Visit Washington D.C. to identify a location for college, publishing house, general conference head quarters and a Sanitarium. Current property site was chosen. Ø $50,000 were solicited from church members around the United States and Other Countries to build Sanitarium. Ø Mrs. White contributed partial proceeds from the sale of her book The Ministry of Healing to the Sanitarium. 15

  16. Early Beliefs on Health Ø Pure Air Ø Sunlight Ø Rest Ø Exercise Ø Proper Diet Ø The Use of Water Ø Trust in Divine Power “These are the true remedies.” Ellen White, Ministry of Healing 16

  17. Healing Ministry – Physical – Mental - Spiritual There is need of coming close to the people by personal effort. If less time were given to sermonizing and more time spent in personal ministry , greater results would be seen. The poor are to be relieved , the sick cared for , the sorrowing and the bereaved comforted , the ignorant instructed, the inexperienced counseled. We are to weep with those that weep, and rejoice with those that rejoice. Accompanied by the power of persuasion, the power of prayer, the power of the love of God, this work will not, cannot be without fruit. Ministry of Healing pages 143, 144 Teach the people that it is better to know how to keep well than to know how to cure disease ( Review and Herald June 6, 1912 ) 17
