In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Ben Mandrell are joined by John Eldredge, author of Wild at Heart and Get Your Life Back. They discuss soul care and how technology causes distractions.
“My attention has been fragmented by the way I work, the way I move, the way I consume media. I want my attention back.”
“Transformation, human restoration, takes place when you are able to give God your attention.”
“If we put some boundaries around technology we get to be people again.”
“The modern pastor has the most ruthless job on the planet.”
“The human soul is nourished by creation.”
“Every leadership meeting has some component of waiting for God to lead.”
“You have to unplug from your world to move into other things.”
“We are in love with distraction because distraction keeps you from having to look at anything inside.”
“If you don’t take care of your soul, you will dry out. And then you will look for relief.”
