A few weeks back I found myself writing a midnight letter to my community. I was overwhelmed after the devastating news that our recently retired Chief of Police had committed suicide. A beloved member of this community, his death compounded the pain our corridor was already suffering after several suicides, tragic accidents and traumas had left their mark of sorrow. The letter began this way:

If you cut a body deep enough, long enough it will bleed to death.

If you withhold food long enough, often enough, the body will die of starvation.

If you deny air, breath, lung space the body will suffocate.

But these are not the only instruments of death that can kill

Hope deferred makes the heart sick.

Hope smothered under the black tar of despair kills the will to live.

Despair is the long black shadow of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Mordor

sucking from life its vibrant attraction,

and it is against despair at all costs, that we must fight.

The wisest man to ever live, Solomon, warned us to guard our heart above all things. Of all the “things” we guard in life, passwords, homes, marriages, children etc. he warns us that we are to demonstrate the most vigilance towards our heart, “for out of it flow the wellspring of life” or another way of saying it is- “everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23.

The soul consists of mind, will, and is the seat of our emotions. Everything that makes up what the Bible refers to as our heart. If our heart is sick, we are in danger of despair, and despair can mire our life force so deeply we can forget that life is a gift.

Soul Focus 2023 exists to create a space in time where we can journey together through the badlands of depression, despair, trauma, woundedness, fatigue and isolation. It exists to create an understanding of the three constants of reality: Pain, Consequence and Work. My hope is that we will discover language to express the soul’s need and form a companioning community equipped to surround each other as we sojourn through the mystery of life- death- life.

As an attendee of Soul Focus 2023 you will experience compassionate, intentional, sensory sessions designed to equip you with your own unique set of tools. These include: Strategy, language and ability to understand, love and move in healing for yourself and those around you.

Each session falls under the CPR Of The Soul Protocol: REVIVE-REFRESH-IGNITE.

There will be a lot of information for you to take in, experience and walk out. The Resource Guide for the Workshop will contain recommended readings, text suggestions, ministry links, worksheets and guides for you to be able to continue what you started in our time together.

We are on the front lines of a real war against life. CPR Of The Soul is the first skill necessary to be the First Responders of this world. In the battlefield you must care for yourself before you can heal another-it is what is meant by:

“Love your neighbor, as yourself” The Gospel of Mark 12: 31
