REFLECTIONS ALONG THE WAY

From the desk of Steve Macchia
Dear Steve,

I was recently teaching on “What is the soul?” to a group of leaders and was reminded how precious the soul remains. It’s the place deep within the essence of our personhood where God alone seeks to reside. But, we tend to close off our soul with a myriad internal and external distractions which result in far too many disordered affections. We need to acknowledge with honest reflection how discombobulated our heart and soul becomes in the rush of the daily routines of our lives. LTI comes alongside leaders and teams and encourages each one to come home to the presence and intimacy of God…where we can say once more “It is well with my soul.”
 
This Sunday marks LTI’s 15th Anniversary. As I reflect on 15 years of offering soul hospitality to leaders, I am profoundly grateful for the daily privilege of helping leaders prioritize the care of their oft-neglected soul. Take a look at all that’s available to you and your team as the LTI family awaits your participation and encouragement.
 
"My soul finds rest in God alone” (Psalm 62:1a)…how about you, dear friend?


Your brother on the journey,

Founder & President

Our Church Health Assessment Tool (CHAT) has helped more than 500 churches conduct a church-wide listening exercise.  We praise God for the ability to leverage the technology available to us today to help church leaders listen well (and without much effort!) as they discern the road ahead.  We firmly believe that in order for leaders to be effective, they need to be good listeners…to God, to one another as discerning leadership teams, and to all whom they serve.

If you haven’t seen CHAT for yourself or your local church, it might be just the right time to do so – and we guarantee it will be well worth your time! Is your church ready for a church-wide listening exercise?  Download our Free Guide to Church Assessment today.
