Blue Zones are those areas around the world that have been identified as producing people with greater longevity than average, with greater quality of life. What accounts for a Blue Zone? Guess what: one common attribute is regular church attendance, notes Pastor Chamie Delkeskamp of Ascension Lutheran Church in Thousand Oaks, Califonia. Pastor Chamie has a heart for her garden ministry -- the soil, the sunshine, the growth, for the closeness to God that she feels in the garden. Gardening is one of the things that makes this pastor, mother and wife feel fully alive. What makes you feel fully alive? Some people live long and are never fully alive. Others live comparatively few years, but oh, how fully alive they are!
