Whether it’s hula-hooping or any other activity, Bishop L. Jonathan Holston has challenged all South Carolina United Methodists to get moving, get it on video, and share it with the world!
It’s Bishop Holston’s way of encouraging United Methodists around the South Carolina Conference to participate in the United Methodist Church’s global Abundant Health initiative.
Abundant Health is part of one of the UMC’s Four Areas of Focus, which express the vision and yearnings of the people of The United Methodist Church.
In the United States, one goal is to raise awareness about the importance of doing physical activity regularly to improve our overall health and wellbeing.
Hula-hooping is a fun physical activity that is a tradition for children in many different countries, and people of all ages and ability levels can try it.
Bishop Holston and his Extended Cabinet got the hula hoop rotating in October by recording their own “Hulapalooza” video. Now they want you and your church to show the world how you stay active.
Once you record your video, mark it with the hashtag #getmovingumcsc and post it on social media.
Want to make your own hula hoop?
The Rev. Meg Cook shows you how:
