    150 150 Strip Church

    Ministry of any kind requires practicing self-care, making sure your heart and mind are right before God and others. “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23).

      Ah, the sweet spot. I think you know which one– the thrilling period prior to and just after an outreach when the spiritual battle feels so palpable you consider picking up your battle gear, charging out and yelling, “FREEEEDOM!!!” These quickly vanishing days of maintaining the newsletters, social networks, and various responsibilities associated with…

    “Not all who wander are lost” is a line from the poem All that is gold does not glitter, written by J. R. R. Tolkien for The Lord of the Rings.
