Staying Anchored & Serving Others During COVID and Quarantine

A Message from Tim Keller | Resiience & Burnout

People love people.

Whether you’re a minister or not, you probably spend countless hours caring others, and even more time identifying ways to care for others. Throw a crisis in the mix and compassionate hearts begin racing while servant’s hands tirelessly move from need to need.

Be careful. Burnout is a real thing.

It may feel as though you are simply tired, but there is more happening than you realize.
Tim Keller, popular pastor and author, recently lead a devotional for pastors. While directed at pastors, his encouragement is profitable for all who care are navigating this time, especially those who are seeking to care for others.

I hope you will spend 25 minutes as he identifies and discusses four things essential to surviving ministry during this crisis.

  1. Extraordinary prayer
  2. Resilience without stoicism
  3. Radical refocusing
  4. Gospel resolve

Need ancouragement, prayer, or have something to add? I would love to hear from you in the comments.


Two additional notes:

  • Don’t skip over the introductory comments. I think you will resonate with them and find encouragement there as well.
  • Thanks to a friend who sent me this link so that I might be encouraged. You know who you are.
