This article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/02/nyregion/02burnout.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1 shares some important statistics that a household of ministers (ahem, that would be us) ought to pay close attention to.

It is so easy to feel like I need to run up to the church on Fridays or do this that and the other to take care of my job when I should actually be making good use of my day off. Or at least making other time throughout the week to care for myself.

Exercise has always been and continues to be a good way to care for my own body but sometimes I need to do more than that. And, really, Matt and I both need to be better about taking our Fridays just for us. Life in two churches can be hard. We are still learning....

  1. Maybe your generation will get it right, Katie. Even God set apart a day of rest. No matter the day of the week, your day off is intended for physical, psychological and spiritual renewal. By having the same day off, you and Matt can provide accountability for one another. Let's see...what are you doing this coming Friday? Or NOT doing!
