Gospel Lens Look at resilience
Wednesday mornings, June 28 - August 2, 2017, 10:00 - 11:30am, Virtual Zoom Group
As ministry couples, we tend to view ourselves as God’s employees and forget we are his beloved children. Grace happens to everyone else while we go on to wear out. Our passion for ministry gets swallowed up by the urgency of those we serve. It has been said, “If you don’t want to burn out, stop living like you are on fire!” Clearly this person was not familiar with pastoral ministry. Are there antidotes to ongoing compassion fatigue, burn out, and secondary stress? What can we do to help our husbands and ourselves hear the gospel applied to ministry when we are worn thin by life. We will use gospel tools to look under the waterline at what causes, maintains, and heals burn out during our Gospel Lens Look at RESILIENCE cohort by Dr. Penny Freeman, co-led by Sharon Hicks.
