Back of Bulletin;

Praise the Lord! A new study suggests churchgoers live healthier lives.

 Those who attend places of worship are less stressed than those who don’t, according to researchers at Vanderbilt University.

 The group looked at the levels of Allostatic load in 5,000 worshipers and non-worshipers to determine which group is more at risk for raised stress levels and health risks that could shorten life spans.

 Allostatic load is a measurement of different factors – blood pressure, cholesterol density, metabolic rate and nutritional/inflammatory levels – to determine how stressed someone is.

 Those (64%) who said they regularly attend church were less stressed.

 Meanwhile, those who never attended a place of worship had significantly higher Allostatic loads and were more stressed and more likely to encounter health problems, the study revealed.

 In an interview with Vanderbilt.com, Marino Bruce, a research associate professor of medicine, health and society, said, “We’ve found that being in a place where you can flex those spiritual muscles is actually beneficial for your health.”

 Those who attend mosques or synagogues achieved similar results.

 The survey findings encourage people to participate in some community of Faith.

This puts us ever-so-close to our goal. We are moving ahead with construction, even though we are still a bit short of the money required for the project. Some of you have been holding off - maybe not really believing we would ever get this far. Please now consider a pledge to help us with the final push in our goal of making Epiphany fully accessible. Thank you to all who have given to this project in faith, even when we were still a long way off. Thank you in advance to those who are about to give. Our prayers are being answered, but there's still a way to go. We are planning to start mid June.

Blessing of the animals

Blessing of the Animals

Sunday April 23, 2016 was a special day for our animal friends. At 2 PM a special service was held for our pets. Approximately 20 dogs and 1 cat showed up to receive the blessing from our Rev Teresa. Many more humans brought pictures of their pets, and these pets were also blessed. A special service at Epiphany could not take place without music. Stephen Holowitz filled the church with his beautiful music on the baby grand. Adam Corrigan Holowitz entertained us with a delightful rendition of an original piece by Oliver Whitehead. Here is a few pictures from the church Sunday afternoon. IMG_0059IMG_0060 IMG_0061IMG_0062 IMG_0063IMG_0064 IMG_0065IMG_0070 IMG_0071IMG_0072 IMG_0073IMG_0074
