Soul Care

 

soulkeepingI just finished reading Soul Keeping by John Ortberg. In it he frequently quotes Dallas Willard. I’m doing a two-part sermon series on the soul, inspired by John’s book. I’ll be preaching the insights I’ve gleaned from my own recent spiritual journey. Soul care is so important for all Christians, but it’s key, in a special way, for those of us who pastor and preach. How can we tend to the souls of others unless we tend first to our own soul?

“In one of his books, Dallas has further explained, What is running your life at any given moment is your soul. Not external circumstances, not your thoughts, not your intentions, not even your feelings, but your soul. The soul is that aspect of your whole being that correlates, integrates, and enlivens everything going on in the various dimensions of the self. The soul is the life center of human beings.” (Soul Keeping, e-book loc 493)
