Theology Of The Body

Earlier teachings with reference to physical bodies in my own faith communities growing up were usually centered on theologies of resurrection and theologies of sex.

They lacked, typically focusing on the spiritual meanings only.

It wasn’t until much later in life, while taking a yoga class, that I realized just how much I had neglected establishing a healthy theology of the body.

My teacher would say things like, “the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

Scripture puts an emphasis on staying connected to both the spiritual and the physical body. It is when that connection is one that the Holy Spirit can truly dwell.
