Black Churches Urging Its Congregation to Be Healthy

Church is more than strengthening one’s soul, it can also be a means of encouraging one to be healthier, says a new Washington Post article. One particular church, Bethel World Outreach in Maryland, is hosting a three-week fast that consists of asking their congregation to eat only fruits, vegetables, salads and raw nuts in order  to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle.
