working smart instead of just harder...

                When we think of self care in ministry, there is a tendency to think in terms of personal habits, diet, exercise, sleep, and time away. All those are true. But there is also a self care that is expressed in the WAY we do ministry. Sometimes we literally shoot ourselves in the foot by the way we go about our work. 

          pushing stone uphill    The Lunch and Learn this month focuses on the work place and the smarter things we can do to help alleviate the burnout and fatigue that we so often experience. We share a collection of lessons learned (some the hard way) on how to be more effective and not empty ourselves so much. Check it out anytime by clicking on the link in the ad below.
