â€œI know what to do. I just need to do it!â€ That was how I responded to my health coach when she asked if I had any questions about improving my diet and increasing my activity level.
Iâ€™m guessing that is true of you, too. We know what it takes to be physically healthyâ€”exercise and good nutritionâ€”but sometimes we struggle to do it.
Our spiritual lives are similar. We know what we need to grow as Christians, and we would benefit from some tips and tricks toward integrating it into our daily routine.
Get Your Spirit in Shape is an award-winning 30-minute podcast from United Methodist Communications produced and hosted by Joe Iovino. Episodes feature casual conversations with leaders, authors, and others who offer spiritual nutrition and exercises for our everyday lives.
While some bishops in the United States serve episcopal areas that include three or four states, Bishop Patrick Streiff serves one that includes 14 countries. The Central and Southern Europe Episcopal Area consists of 12 countries in Europe and two in Africa.
In addition to talking about his amazing work as a bishop, in this conversation from Zurich, Switzerland, we talk about his early life in Bern, the beginnings his faith development, his love of study and skiing, and his doctoral thesis on early Methodist John William Fletcher.
It is such a privilege to meet Bishop Patrick Streiff.
