Counseling Seminar: Gaining a Healthy Relationship with Food
Brier Creek Campus - Summit en Español Venue
We don’t just consume food. We have a relationship with food. From infancy, bad behavior was punished with “no dessert for you” and if we worked extra hard we “deserved a treat.” Now we feel guilty for eating “bad foods” (by whatever criteria we moralize food) and we are perpetually self-conscious about our figure (as if there was a “holy” body type which receives God’s special favor). Hopefully, you can begin to see that food is so much more than fuel in our culture. For many of us, a primary obstacle to a healthy relationship with God is an unhealthy relationship with food. We “cast our cares” on comfort foods instead of the God of all comfort, and we live with a sense of guilt or anxiety over our eating habits. Gaining a Healthy Relationship with Food is a seminar intended to counter this strong cultural tendency. This seminar addresses both over-indulgence and/or over-restriction in your relationship with food, and points to the same answer for both: the freedom of Christ which allows you to accept the body God gave you as good, while wisely stewarding your body for God’s glory and your satisfaction.
