Welcome to September I guess??
Thanks for sharing your thoughts Fab, and making an important connection between your experience with illness and how we treat our bodies even without chronic illness like yours. It seems that we treat our bodies the way the medical industry does - only care for it when it's become a big problem, rather than making healthy adjustments to prevent it getting that bad in the first place. Definitely not in line with our Creator and the rhythms of Sabbath He modeled.
*A comment on your poll: every newsletter can only reflect on past events, or announce future planned events. Therefore, it is ok to call it the September newsletter when it is published, as it is not possible to fully reflect on August before that month has ended. My 2 cents ;)
