Subtitle: Making Space for What Matters Most

Sat through a three-hour meeting at work.....have papers to grade.....cell phone won't quit ringing.....need to get the kids to band and soccer practice....have to run to the bank....trying to make it to worship ensemble rehearsal .....the house is a mess.....your boss is on your back.....running late.....the car has a flat tire....got in an argument with your spouse......Are you feeling overwhelmed yet?
Like Jesus' words in Matthew 11, Embracing Soul Care is about slowing down, stepping outside the chaos of our lives, and entrusting God with the care of our souls - letting Him give us peace that is truly satisfying. It is not about more principles that teach us how to live a fulfilled life or manage our busy lives. It's about taking care of what is most important. It's an invitation to a journey full of true companionship, relationship, and intimate friendship.
