Reflecting on Soul Care (Part 4)

Jon George reflects on his experience of being a part of Soul Care. Seven Mile Road is getting ready to launch three Soul Care communities next month and invite the folks in our community to jump in.

When I was first invited to join Soul Care, I was hesitant.  I had several excuses:  I didn’t have the time to invest in it every week; my schedule is variable and may not be able to commit consistently; I feel like I know these brothers and sisters well enough–no need to try to get to know them better;  I have enough family and christian friends around me for support and strength.  Nonetheless, as I started to delve into weekly sessions of opening up ourselves to the brothers and sisters in our Soul Care community, I’ve gotten to know these people at a level that I’ve never known any of my friends, bringing us closer in the Lord.  In a sense, I’ve gotten addicted to gathering on Monday nights that if I miss one night, I feel an emptiness that is not satisfied until the next meeting.  I’m not saying that it doesn’t take boldness and sacrifice because I volunteered information about myself that I have shared with few people, but I must add that I feel all the more stronger for it.  In my weakness, trials and temptations, I now have a circle that I can truly lean on for physical, emotional and spiritual support.  Having done this, I encourage you to give Soul Care a chance and allow yourself to team up with other brothers and sisters to run the same race and fight the same battle in this journey of life.
