Please do not RSVP here. Please RSVP directly to the Loving Life & Yoga Las Vegas at: http://www.meetup.com/lovinglife/events/calendar/ Serving the Homeless & Feeding Peace This is what being an "active" prayer is all about - matching the time that we spend on our fitness with time out in the world, serving others. It's the entire reason that we strive to be healthy and fit...so we can share that gift!
While we worry about staying in shape, some of our neighbors are worrying about where they're going to get their next meal.
Let's come together in the spirit of ActivPrayer and start the day off with a service event. You can probably even squeeze this one in before work. I promise you that it will make all the difference in your day. And yes, it's even better than an awesome morning workout!
We partner with Catholic Worker for this service project because they've got a great breakfast program and they start every morning with an ecumenical prayer. People from ALL faiths show up at the house on most mornings. The people are very cool, and they sincerely love the work that they're doing. It's a special experience. Chances are you will be touched even more than the people you're serving.
Going forward, ActivPrayer has a goal to split our time - 50% spiritual fitness related activities (hikes, boot camp in the park, etc) and 50% on charity work. Our organization is going to remain committed to matching our time spent directly on physical health with time spent directly serving others. We hope you'll join us for BOTH of these experiences! Each is brought to true fulfillment by the other. We start our workout in the gym, but we end it on the streets.
