Here at Wesley Church, we are blessed with an incredibly dedicated, capable, faithful church staff. This week, I had the privilege of “gathering” with them (remotely, of course) for our annual Staff Retreat. Led by my friend and colleague Amy Enders, our retreat focused on matters like stress management, resilience, and self-compassion. It’s always important to tend to these kinds of things in our lives… but all the more important in a high-stress situation like a global pandemic!
Today, take some time to pray for our staff, giving thanks for the ways they’ve creatively adapted their ministries throughout COVID-tide, and asking for God’s blessing and protection upon them.
