Note: Three Minute Ministry Mentor Host, Eileen Campbell-Reed is on a short Sabbath break. Because sometimes rest and renewal must be the priority! However, she and Erin Robinson Hall had a fun conversation on Friday, October 1. They talked about ministry books, Clergy Appreciation Month, ministry in no-win situations, and the stories we are hearing from ministers these days. We are excited to share the conversation with you today.
October is Clergy Appreciation Month! If you love and support a clergyperson, maybe you will ask them about their practice of Sabbath! It’s not about judgement or advice giving. Just ask. And then listen. If you are a clergy person, we invite you to think with us about how to sustain your practice of Sabbath. And how it in turn, sustains you.
In this episode from 3MMM Season One, you will hear how a young white minister and parent named Marcus incorporated Sabbath into his summer. And you can also read about how Sabbath and justice are deeply connected.
We also invite you to explore (and share!) some of the many resources about Sabbath practice here at the website.
Questions for You!
What practices of Sabbath are nourishing my ministry? My soul?
This and many other provocative and supportive questions can be found in Eileen’s Pastoral Imagination Journal. Do you have your copy yet?
This week our host @ecampbellreed is taking a few days of #Sabbath rest. Here is a word about Sabbath from her book #pastoralimagination.
