Can Habits Make us Holy?
Does changing your habits change your life? Can you become healthier, happier, or holier if you incorporate new, small daily habits into your life?
I decided to start this year off with a new habit. I have to work out regularly because I have arthritis. If I don’t work out, I feel terrible all day. If I do work out, I feel pretty good all day. Since I’ve had a hard time being consistent, I decided I would simplify my workout routine and do one short workout every day...
Pastor, Do You Need a Coach?
Ministry life can be overwhelming at any time, but with a pandemic, the pressure is even greater. I’ve been working with pastors as a canon for the past eight years, but this past year has been the most stressful for pastors I’ve ever seen.
When I experienced burnout ten years ago, I had many supporters who helped me find renewal. Pastors and leaders need trusted support to maintain a well and healthy soul. I could not have recovered without the help of others. That’s why I feel called now to be a pastor to pastors and leaders.
Interview with a Grief Counselor
During the stay-at-home-order, I was able to interview my wife Victoria, who is a grief counselor and who continues to provide support to clients during this crisis. Victoria Goebel, LMSW, is a Bereavement Counselor at Crossroads Hospice of Atlanta. She is a graduate of the Masters in Social Work program at the University of Georgia.
What is grief?
Grief is the thoughts and feelings related to a loss, such as the death of a loved one, and includes anything we experience inside in response to a loss.
I'm Afraid. Are You?
We all feel fear. Fear of viruses affecting loved ones, financial fears, or just a general sense of foreboding. During any time of crisis or disorientation, fear is a natural and normal reaction. In fact, without fear, the human race would not survive. It warns us of danger, based on our ability to anticipate what might happen based on what we are seeing, hearing, and sensing…and thinking.
I’m feeling that fear myself. Are you?
