Welcome to the Soma SoulWorks Podcast! This podcast serves to help people, particularly those who may label themselves as "creatives," to seek wholeness and calling so they are ready to embrace the mission God has for them. Consider this podcast a rogue harmony of professional development and self-care, hosted by John Bergquist and Chris Skaggs.

What’s covered in this episode: 
  • What are our goals with this podcast and with Soma Soulworks?
    • “If Soma’s mission is to be apostolic, we are trying to live out and demonstrate cultural values. What does it mean to be believers in Christ in a very, just, normal world?” - Chris Skaggs
    • This podcast places an emphasis on processing specific issues together, rather than trying to bring answers. “If Tempus Divum is curriculum-based, Soma Soulworks is processing time,” Chris explains. “I don’t want to be the ‘answer place’, if I can just be the ‘honesty place’. That’s enough.”
    • We hope this can be a place of connection; it can be helpful to realize there are others out there wrestling with the same things you are. 
    • Our main goal is to follow what the Holy Spirit is doing.
  • We live on an external and internal level, Mark says. It’s easy to be known by your external life, but it’s harder to be vulnerable and to be known on an internal one. The temptation to be fake and performative is pervasive and exhausting. We need an opportunity to embrace, rather than shy away from, our internal lives.
  • Jesus wants to meet you where you’re at. He recognized people and really saw them in what they were doing, and yet he called them to so much more and wanted to unpack where they were at, Mark observes. 
  • What kind of resources and practices are we cultivating?
    • Weekly Jesus times
    • Weekend prayers and contemplations
    • Tempus Divum (this has additional resources and questions)
