There was a news story that came out today from the United Methodist News Service from a survey done of UMC that found that half of the clergy reported significant stress from their jobs. And that made me wonder what the other half of the clergy are doing, or not doing, that they are not feeling stress? Stress just seems to come with the territory, sometimes less and sometimes more, but can you really be in the ministry and not feel stress? Doesn't seem likely to me.
I haven't posted in a long time as we have been moving and changing churches so have been preoccupied with other things, with a lot of stress, but now that we are in and getting settled I hope to begin posting regularly again, as well as posting all the sermons that didn't get put up in the interim.
