Being a leader is rarely easy. People look to you for guidance, inspiration, order. You try to balance your many personal obligations with your responsibilities to Women of the ELCA.
When the balance is off, not only does your faith life suffer, but also the vitality and fruitfulness of your ministry suffer. The real danger to those of us who see ourselves as doing God’s work is that we get so caught up in our ministries that we fail to recall and be with the very source of our life, God. How can you deepen your faith life and still accomplish all that needs to be done?
What faith disciplines can you engage in order to refocus your energies on the redeeming and reconciling love of God in Jesus Christ and realign your relationship with God?
This message is an excerpt from a Women of the ELCA blog by Linda Post Bushkofsky.
