01 Jan Being Resilient through Hard Times-Rose Madrid Swetman
Most pastors are living through “secondary trauma”. Research states most pastors deal with 2-4 crises per month, which can lead to burnout and train-wrecks. Rose Madrid Swetman encourages pastors and leaders to seriously consider how they are making time for their well-being. What does it mean to cultivate grit, to get through hard times to finish well? Rose shared this message in 2019 as part of a Breaking 200 Series about how being resilient is an invitation to moving beyond just holding on to flourishing and thriving in ministry.
