The Seventh-day Adventist Church recently released a social media campaign on healthful living for members to share with their churches and the public.
The “Facts with Hope” campaign offers 12 one-minute videos that share tips on the importance of physical activity, healthy eating, maintaining healthy relationships and gratitude.
The one-minute spots can be viewed individually, shown to groups and churches, embedded into websites and shared through social media.
This is a great way to share our messages on health, which have been backed up by scientific study,” said Katia Reinert, Health Ministries director for the Adventist Church’s North American Division. “We want people to know evidence-based ways of how to live healthier, happier lives.
The Adventist world church has promoted healthful living since the denomination was established more than 150 years ago. In recent decades, Adventists have been featured in books and magazines for longevity, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health is helping fund extensive research on what makes Adventists one of the longest living people groups ever studied. Also, in 2011, the Pan American Health Organization established a collaboration with the Adventist Church to help implement the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals at grassroots levels throughout North America and South America.
The “Facts with Hope” series was produced by the Adventist Church’s North American Division Health Ministries department and the Adventist world church’s Communication department.
