The post-Christmas post (part 1)

Do you feel like you need to take a breath? Did you work yourself to death last week, planning and hosting and being with family then scramble to manage your ministry’s Christmas program then turn right around to face Sunday again only to have a new week start today? It’s no wonder you’re exhausted!

So relax.

Take a deep breath. Or five.

Commit this week to relaxing and reflecting.

Today, reflect on the 2009 in your life and in your ministry, and think about all the things that went well. What accomplishments are you most proud of? What wins have you experienced in your organization this year? How many children committed their lives to Christ for the first time? When did you see your students begin to personalize faith and participate in ministry through service? Take an hour and write about the wins of 2009.
