Grace Church to Host Yoga and Body Recall Classes
Body Recall LogoLaura Hall, a member of Grace's Health and Wellness committee, will be leading Yoga and Body Recall classes begining Wednesday, September 19.  The cost is $11 per session.
BODY RECALL (Wednesdays at 10:00 am). Body recall is a different approach to movement and exercise.  It is a safe and gentle movement class designed by Dorothy Chrisman of Berea College in Kentucky. It was originally developed to assist the "living longer" population to regain or call back the vitality and flexibility of the body. However, it is appropriate for all ages. You will not be tired, sweaty or exhausted from the classes. It is FUN with FELLOWSHIP! You may need to DO it to BELIEVE it!!!
YOGA (Wednesdays at 4:00 pm). Beginning gentle Hatha Yoga classes appropriate for everyone 10 years and older.  We will be practicing pranayama (breath control), asana (movements) and mudra (gestures).  Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat if you have one. A few yoga mats will be available for purchase in class.
Call Grace Church at 513-542-2415 for information or to sign up.
Potluck & Story-Telling A Great Success! 

Potluck Food
Dear People of Grace:

Thank you so much for sharing your stories last Sunday, September 16th.  It was wonderful and I am grateful for them.  It is an indication of a community that is willing to be open and vulnerable to each other and to the working of the Holy Spirit.  I am hopeful and excited for our future because I know that God will work through to accomplish his will.  I leave you with these verses from Philippians 2:2-5:

Make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.

Yours in Christ,
