Seventh Day Adventist Christians who reportedly live an average of 10 years longer than most, will on Sunday May 1st 2016 call all from near and far, to Move to Live! This initiative is being spearheaded by the Health Department of the Saint Lucia Mission of Seventh Day Adventists. It will feature an ambitious and fun brisk walking activity. According to the Mission’s Health and Publishing Director, Pastor Lucius Phillip, every effort to respect the human body as the temple of the Holy Spirit finds its authority in pivotal, bible-based principles. The Move to Live initiative, which was first observed in July of 2014 has as a primary objective to promote a culture of good physical health in Saint Lucia so that citizens might live longer, more fulfilled and productive lives, benefitting not only the Christian church, but also the whole society. This event is gradually becoming an annual sensation amongst Christians, health fanatics and fun lovers alike.
