Pastoral Report - June 2015

Inspire … Serve … Grow are in our mission statement. Building Faith, Finding Friendships is our tagline. Do we express this as individuals and Disciples of Christ here at St. Mark’s?

Do they change how we live, make decisions and relate to each other?

Fitbit Spirituality

Recently I bought a Fitbit Surge HR. It monitors my steps each day, my heart rate, my sleep habits, and stairs taken, among other fitness activity. It can tell me who is calling on my cell phone and wake me in the morning. I find it useful to motivate me to walk more and eat better. I am even in several groups where there are challenges and you can cheer for each other to attain goals.
