Family Episode this week as we welcome our friend Daniel Stevanus, Stal as we call him. Stal handles all of 12:30’s blogs, podcast and social media here at our ministry. He also serves as a Student Pastor at a large methodist church in our community.
We’ll be talking with Stal about how to Take a Sabbath when you work on Sundays. If we burn out, there is no way we can minister to those in our care – we’ve done a few episodes on Soul Care and this week we’ll focus on how to take time off so you can make Sunday happen. Sounds contradictory? We don’t think so.
What are some things you can do to protect your Sabbath?
choose a day (keep it the same each week)
create rituals to celebrate your Sabbath
practice activities that recharge you
spend time with the Father
cut off work communication (except for emergencies)
Can you / how can you worship at the church you work at?
Are there opportunities to worship at other churches? How do you take advantage of these?
