A Life in Balance

Consider the interconnectedness of the key aspects of life. One component out of balance affects everything else. The balance wheel was created by the Augustana Staff to reflect the realities of everyday life. It is a tool that identifies seven aspects of our lives and their interconnectedness, and is meant to be used as a starting point to examine our lives.

It is incredibly difficult to live a balanced life by yourself. Community plays an important role. Over the next seven months we will work together toward balance. There will be a month-olong focus on each aspect of the Balance Wheel. As a faith community, we will engage in conversation activities, and goal-setting.
