More than any other period in our lifetime, the world seems to be swirling in chaos. On top of that, many of us have personal crisis or perpetual responsibilities that leave us traumatized. Today I talk with Virgil Tanner about two strategies for centering on Christ in the midst of a chaotic world. The first strategy is for long term soul health. The second strategy can be adapted to acute times of crisis to keep us from spiraling out of control.

Virgil’s Framework

The Five Dimensions of the Human Soul, and the three areas to address with each:

  • Spiritual: Alone, With Others, Working in the World
  • Physical: Eat, Move, Recover
  • Cognitive: Learn, Focus, Play
  • Emotional: Notice, Interview, Manage
  • Relational: Discern, Invest, Grow

Virgil Tanner has been married for 20 years and is a father of five. He has lived on three continents and currently oversees strategy and global operations for a non-profit with hundreds of staff scattered all over the world.
