How do you look after your soul? Gaze at sunsets? Go for a run? Seek out friends or family? The bible directs us towards a few simple rhythms of life that can transform our journey and bring health to our souls. The practice of prayer, being rooted in the words and ways of God in the bible, and daily cooperating with the Holy Spirit all help give us vital soul satisfaction.
“The soul is NOT ‘a theological and abstract subject.’ The soul is the coolest, eeriest, most mysterious, evocative, crucial, sacred, eternal, life-directing, fragile, indestructible, controversial, expensive dimension of your existence. Jesus said it’s worth more than the world”.
John Ortberg – Soul Keeping
Catch the vision…
For centuries the bible has had an incredible influence on millions of lives. It has a unique perspective of life on earth and an ability to stop us in our tracks and lead us to an encounter with God Himself! There is no book like it – it frequently disrupts our carefully made plans, it can calm us, sometimes disturb us, it even enables us to peer into the plans of God.
At Soulfood our vision is to help people to experience the bible’s life changing power – through reading it regularly, transformationally and in community with each other. We believe the bible is chock full of wisdom on how to live life well and those that learn to walk to it’s rhythm will discover the secret of a rich and happy life.
Soulfood is a collection of meditations, created by a selected group of writers from the Woodlands Group of Churches, following the current sermon series. The writers, though gifted communicators, are all ‘regular’ people with real life, honest reflections to offer.
The SoulFood team is composed of Clare Thompson, Angela Moseley, Jane and Kelvin Reeves and Jo Appleton – plus a team of 25 or so writers who are all amazing! All the writers are from the Woodlands Group of churches.
