Episode 5

Three Core Questions of Every Soul

Show Notes

In this episode we join Steve and Gwen for two sessions of their Soul Care 101 course recorded at the retreat center known as Potter’s Inn at Aspen Ridge. Enjoy this fireside conversation with pops and crackles from the fireplace, as they examine the three core questions of every soul. In the first session they talk about:

Question 1 - Am I Loved?

Every person everywhere wants to know if they are loved. Some (or all) of us may have love wounds where we either didn’t get the love we needed or we looked for love in all the wrong places. Learn what it means to be beloved and how to rest in the truth of God’s love for us.

In the second session they discuss:

Question 2 - Am I Safe?

What fears do we carry with us that shape us? How do these fears affect our image of God? If we don’t feel safe how does that affect how we relate to others? Also it’s good to ask, am I a safe person? Do I listen to others or am I quick to judge?

Question 3 - Do I Belong?   

It is evident from an early age that we all want to belong to a group, a community. Where are we finding our safe community? Is it the right place? Are we able to be our true selves there or do we feel that we have to act or look a certain way? Do we change our behavior depending on where we are or who we are with?
