Church members from the Chonburi Group Worship Service (GWS) in the Ecclesiastical District of Thailand attended a sleep awareness webinar on March 6, 2022, educating them about parasomnias.
Parasomnia is defined as a disorder which causes unusual behavior in a person while in his sleep such as sleepwalking, sleep talking, nightmares, and teeth grinding. Though it may be common, medical experts say that having parasomnia may be dangerous since when fast asleep, people are unaware of their surroundings and their own actions (healthline.com).
Resource speaker Arren Bleu Calleja, a sleep physiologist based in New Zealand, discussed the common sleep disorders, their symptoms, and how they can be prevented or treated in order to have good quality sleep.
In his Bible-based lecture before the webinar concluded, Brother Maximino Vito, resident minister of the Chonburi GWS, reminded the attendees that just as it is important to take care of one’s health, so is making sure that they fulfill their Church duties. He pointed out that God expects them to be “awake” or active when it comes to the works for the Lord. — With reports from INC News Section
