Florida Presbyterian Homes is pleased to award Rev. Dick Huggins with the Wellness Star for April 2019.
This month’s award focuses on the vocational dimension of wellness, which is work that utilizes a person’s skills while providing personal satisfaction. Participating in paid and unpaid workforce means maintaining skills and helping others.
Rev. Dick Huggins is the perfect picture of the vocational dimension of wellness.
Rev. Huggins stays busy at FPH leading an occasional Sunday chapel, or services on Ash Wednesday and Holy Thursday, and is an active member of a committee that evaluates campus needs. Plus, Rev. Huggins not only helps here on the FPH campus, but also fills in at local churches when there is a pastor vacancy.
His career as a minister has spanned many years — with over 21 years in development with the Presbyterian Foundation and 20 years as an active pastor for churches in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey and Florida.
It’s no surprise that Rev. Huggins stays very busy in his retirement. In fact, he said, “Every day is a new adventure, even in retirement. And I’ve enjoyed every minute of the ministry.”
When asked what wellness means to him, Rev. Huggins said, “Being aware and taking care of yourself begins with you.” That’s great advice from the April 2019 Wellness Star award winner.
