Spring 2019 I Prevention and Wholehearted Living: A Head Start on Better Health
SPRING 2019 PREVIEW:
We often think of prevention as something entirely individual, but congregations can do this corporately. In this issue of Church Health Reader, we explore how to practice prevention together and weave these concepts of caring for one another into the fabric of our churches and communities.
