Attending to Cracks in the Soul

October 6, 2010

Came across this post by Dr. Bill Donahue on “Signs of Soul Erosion” on his blog DrBillDonahue.com.

He lists seven things that we should examine to see if we have some issues with “cracks in the soul”.  He also asked this question:

But are we engaged in the disciplines that bring connection with God, life to our spirit, and capacity to truly serve others with energy and discernment?

Please read his blog for the full description, but following are his seven areas to examine:

Words without action.

Busyness without purpose.

Relationships without Reciprocity

Calendars without a Sabbath

Pastoral Personality without Self-Examination

Possessing a Natural Gift without Spiritual Power

Having a Grand Theology without a True Spirituality

How are you doing in these areas?
