Many years ago Phil Strout was asked a simple question on a regular basis, by one of his great spiritual mentors. "How is your soul, Phil?" would come the query, each time they would meet.
That question, in the tradition of the best of of Ignatian spirituality, is designed to call you and I to give our attention to our intimacy with Jesus through the wear and tear of life.
For every pastor and individual member of your congregation, this popular resource, How Is Your Soul? was designed in light of Phil's challenge to leaders and church members in the Vineyard community to regularly ask this question.
How Is Your Soul? is an accessible 4 week, personal study for spiritual renewal. Written for each person in your congregation, these 20 pages will equip your church members to engage with God in a rich new way.
How Is Your Soul? Examine your life; ask the questions of the heart.
How Is Your Family? Your first church; how can you tend carefully to their needs?
How Is Your Work? We work to give; how do we carry Christ into our work?
How Is Your Calling? Join God's future; what is your part in God's mission?
