Cranking away in ministry for sneaking on six years has put me in the position to see a number of people burn out, crack, or quit. Have seen morale failure. Have seen tired wives with exhausted eyes who crave attention from anyone that will offer it. I myself have struggled at points with being a ministryoholic and have seen the impact on my family.
Here are some things I like about what the author Anne Jackson is doing with this book:
So, I took the survey and would encourage you to take it as well. Let’s give her the inside view of what is really going on in ministry. There are even surveys for ministry spouses & children and ministry volunteers. Anne warns you up front that she gets pretty personal and she certainly does. But she seems to be candid about her own struggles on her personal blog with posts like An Emotional Affair. That makes me trust her and what she is doing on this project.
Here is a little video promo/endorsement from that Ragamuffin Soul dude. Worth a gander.
