Feelings can be rather tricky to bring to prayer. Sometimes we might not be fully aware of what we’re really feeling, & sometimes we might believe that God is more interested in “correct theology” than our feelings.
We can overstate or understate feelings, but in either case it can be difficult to let Jesus into the experience of them. This is especially true if we deem them unacceptable for “good” Christians.
This afternoon workshop aims to help us listen to what might be going on in us from the aspect of soul, rather than from simply the mind. What help, & indeed beautiful things might our soul be offering us as we refrain from judging our feelings? Can we let them be embraced by the God who has known us all along & who knows us better than we can ever know ourselves?
