I came across a great article twice today that was in the New York Times. I came across it first from the blog 43folders.com and then second from the pastor of married ministry at my church. The article is about “burnout.”
Those of you in churches or ministries work a lot… you should read this article.
Print it out, go fill up your water glass or coffee cup. Then, shut your door most of the way (non-verbally communicating “leave me alone”) open iTunes/Radio/Classical/Whisperings (it is relaxing piano music) and put your feet up on your desk. Grab a pen and start reading. When people come by, tell them that your reading an article from the New York Times and it will impress them.
That is what I did… but no one came by…dang.
