    TLC Soul Care Training: Saturday, October 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


    Healing Heart

    Being a people whom God uses to bring healing means we are a people who are able to meet people where they are, as they are. As we meet people in their pain, loneliness, confusion, and brokenness we seek to understand, for without understanding, we cannot move to provide help and healing. People who seek to understand listen, and they empathize; that is, understanding people seek to view the situation and experience from the point of view of the other, the one in pain rather than from their own vantage point. When we say, “Put yourself in their shoes,” we are talking about empathizing. With empathy, we begin to understand the struggle and pain of those are seeking to help. Without it, we become dismissive and demeaning. Empathy is an important tool for the healer. There is just one problem. Empathy is hard. The honest truth is most of us struggle to see life from any vantage point other than our own. We are self-centered, and often do not realize it because we think everyone sees life as we do. Therefore, healers must move off their own center if they are to be effective. It is this 'moving off our own center' which will be the focus of our second installment of TLC Soul Care Training. We invite you to join us on Saturday, October 5th as we open ourselves to God together, seeking to have him equip us to see beyond ourselves. Lunch will be provided. Please sign up at the Resource Center or contact the office for more information.
