Overcoming Weariness in the Pastorate
Pastoring is difficult. It takes its toll. You end up tired . . . then weary . . . then burned out. How do you recognize the signs that you need a break before it's too late? What can you do to deal with fatigue and prevent exhaustion?
On this edition of Pastor to Pastor, host H.B. London Jr. explores the causes and cures of weariness in the lives of pastors. Physician, professor and author Richard Swenson explains how to find contentment and the important of retaining sufficient rest in our lives to allow for the unexpected. Teacher, speaker and author Anne Graham Lotz emphasizes the significance of keeping our focus on the Lord and seeking His fresh touch. Pastor, businessman and former military intelligence analyst Erik Ohman describes his recent sabbatical and its reviving impact. And author, former senior pastor and INJOY founder John Maxwell examines why weariness occurs and how pastors can minimize it.
