Corporate Spirituality: Part 10—Soul Care II

Corporate Spirituality: Part 10—Soul Care II

Ken Boa continues to discuss soul care, an aspect of true Christian community that involves relationships for the purpose of personal spiritual growth. Paul, Barnabas, and Timothy serve as a model for mentoring: all of us need a person further down the road in the spiritual journey (a Paul), a person to whom we pass on spiritual guidance and insights (a Timothy), and a colaborer or coworker in the Kingdom—someone who encourages us and spurs us on (a Barnabas). Mentors do not have to be living; they could be authors or people from our past who have gone on to be with the Lord.

Note: This session is based on material in chapter 36 (starting on p. 437) in Ken’s book Conformed to His Image.
