Soul Reset

Breakdown, Breakthrough, and the Journey to Wholeness

  Register for this eCourse Classroom

Everything was going fine … until it wasn't. For Reverend Junius B. Dotson it took an actual breakdown during a funeral for him to realize he needed a reset. As he recalls his own journey through grief, depression, burnout, and emotional breakdown, Dotson is passionate about calling for a Soul Reset. He is calling out to all of us; pastors, church leaders, and all disciples of Jesus Christ.

This eCourse Edition of Soul Reset is a 6-week study. It is for everyone who moves at breakneck speed through their daily lives, often relying only on their own strength to bring God's kingdom on earth. Jesus shows us a different way, a more natural, unforced rhythm of what kingdom work looks like. It's a balance of work, rest, play, worship, exercise, and eating well—spiritual practices that keep our souls hydrated and healthy. At our best, we do our best in the work of the church in the world.

Soul Reset: Breakdown, Breakthrough, and the Journey to Wholeness is available in a variety of formats.

Soul Reset is a call for the church and all of Jesus' disciples to reset and reorder their lives around spiritual practices. We will learn to walk through our difficult seasons with our souls connected to the source of Living Water so that we don't burn out or break down. And if we do burn out or break down, we learn to lift one another up and point one another back to Jesus.
