Nights in Downtown Jackson

Instead of starting out to begin a new denomination, John Wesley, along with others, began a movement for the renewal of the church and at the very foundation of this movement were small groups, which Wesley called classes.Each time these classes came together they addressed the question,"How is it with your soul?”

In response to this question, many of us have the tendency to not share what is really on our hearts and minds. We might talk about our busyness, as if that somehow shapes what is happening inside. We might talk about how everything is going well, as if that is what others want to hear. Some of us quickly turn the tables with, "Fine! How’s yours?”

What might happen if we are actually honest with ourselves, others, and God?

Would we say...


"My soul is tired.”
"My soul is heavy.”
"My soul is broken.”
"My soul is hopeful."
"My soul is tempted.”
"My soul is overwhelmed."

When we go to a doctor, we are honest about what hurts us. When we go to a mechanic, we tell the truth about what seems to be wrong with our car. It makes sense to us to be open and honest about what is not working so we can get whatever is broken, fixed. But somehow, with our soul, we’d rather not acknowledge the cracks. After all, if we acknowledge the cracks, we might have to acknowledge the causes.

This fall, we have a variety of small groups and Bible studies which offer an opportunity to reflect upon the question, "how is it with my soul?" in community.
