Your body is the office of the Holy Spirit, and as such, conducts Christs presence in the midst of relationships. As a conductor of Christs presence, you are the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) responsible for making wise office maintenance decisions. After reviewing your notes from the readings and learning activities to date, thoughtfully do the following: Noticeably use several notions from Hess & Arnold and Epperly to describe the present state of the Holy Spirits office (i.e., your body). As the CEO, identify harmful and helpful patterns in your current approach to self-care. In what ways are these patterns causing you to languish and/or flourish? Do not judge, over-analyze, compare, or attempt to fix! Simply describe what you see rather than prescribe what you want to see. As a co-conductor of Christs presence, noticeably use several notions from Hess & Arnold and Epperly to develop a preferred office state. Sixty days out, what would that picture look like if you intentionally pursued self-care? Do not fix! Simply picture an office area with helpful patterns in place. Delineate a practical strategy (i.e., small, measurable steps) to achieve the preferred state within sixty days. Noticeably integrate insights and techniques from Hess & Arnold and Epperly. Keep your eye on the preferred state, anticipate resistance and relapse, and how to best return to the routine. TIPS: Review Meaning-Making Forum Guidelines & Rubric! Make sure to use headings (3) so that the most inattentive reader may easily follow your thoughts. Use the annotated outline approach. Bullets should have concise, complete, well-developed sentences or paragraphs. Foster a noble-minded climate for investigating claims through well-supported core assertions (i.e., consider the validation pattern of the Bereans; Acts 17:11). Since your students have the required materials (e.g., The Life of the Body), you have been given permission to creatively abridge any related citations (Hess & Arnold., pg. 15) without listing the required source in a References section. Secondary sources referenced must follow current APA guidelines for citations and References. Make every effort to prove that you care about the subject matter by proofreading to eliminate grammar and spelling distractions.
