Soul Care from Christian Leadership Alliance. The article talked about the many ways you can feed your soul. With so many options for spiritual nutrition, it's easy to burn out on the spiritual disciplines by overloading your plate with too many spiritual activities. The author, Stephen Macchia, suggested that you major on the majors by focusing on Scripture, prayer, and reflection. I was particularly struck by this, "the recipe for vitality included three basic ingredients: time and space set apart to receive the gift of God's Word, the joy of prayerful communion with the Trinity, and the gratitude of the heart that emerges from personal reflection on life."
