Base chapel hosts spiritual fitness luncheon series

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Peterson Chapel will host Spiritual Fitness luncheons from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Thursdays during the next month.

Each luncheon will provide those in attendance an opportunity to discuss and learn about important spiritual topics from the perspective of individuals who serve in and with the military.

Chaplain (Maj.) Matthew Boarts, 21st Space Wing chaplain, said the luncheons will also provide insights about spiritual topics that are vital in the midst of high ops tempo, deployments, significant changes and uncertainty.

In addition to a buffet provided by the chapel, the weekly topics of discussion include:
- "Millennials and Spirituality." Learning how to lead the youngest generation in the military is a topic of interest to many leaders. Part of the leadership toolkit is to understand how young people find strength and support to perform at the high levels demanded by the military. May 7.

- "Facing Evil: The Five 'Languages' of Suffering." Many have heard of the Five Love Languages, this is the Five Suffering Languages. A perennial question is "Why do bad things happen to good people." May 14.

- "Human Dignity, Religious Freedom, and Spirituality." Human dignity is the concept that human beings are, in and of themselves, inherently valuable. Each of us is valuable and worthy of respect without regard to external circumstance simply by virtue of our identity as a human being. June 4.

- "The Power of Stories." Stories, especially personal accounts of events, are important ways to share values and communicate important skills. As combat deployments are winding down, it is vital that the Airmen who have deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq share their stories with those newly arrived to the force. June 11.

For information or to register for a luncheon, call 556-4442. "Drop-ins" are also welcome.
