Show Quotes: 

  • How well do you know the room?
  • Walk the roster. Whose student’s story do you not know? 
  • Their formative experiences will shape how they hear from you, how they engage with your ministry. We need to listen and adapt so that we may help.
  • We so often put ourselves on islands of serving others, but living alone.
  • Too often, we place all the worry of what needs to happen on our shoulders. Our work is to put a team together around our students to walk through the trauma well. 
  • Doing ministry well comes through training. 
  • Vicarious Trauma. The painful resonance of working with people 
  • We need people to help us when we take the work home with us.  
  • We are not exempt from facing our own trauma.

Resting isn’t sleeping.

Resting is your work ethic.

Resting is worship.

  • We need eyes in on our lives, for the purpose of being whole, aware, and healed.
  • When the people of God learn how to rest, the Holy Spirit will give everything we truly need.
  • Acknowledge your brokenness. God wants to heal your busy and broken body.
  • There are valleys and mountains to this work and God is in both places.
