How Is Your Soul?

Posted by on September 10th, 2013 with 0 Comments



This is one of my favorite short pieces.  It comes from a great mentor and friend, Dr. Jerry Flora, Professor Emeritus, Ashland Theological Seminary.  These are his words:


How is your soul?

We tend to respond with what we are DOING.

Where do you go for nurture of yourself?

(Long silent pause.)

Where do we go for nurture?

(Long silent pause.)

Art, poetry and music speak to me more than ever.

We are never going to FIND time.

We are going to have to MAKE time, SET time, CARVE OUT time.

It is a deliberate process — and our lives depend on it.

It is going to be a slow, measured, thoughtful, deliberate way, too.


— Dr. Jerry Flora
