When was the last time you felt really, truly refreshed? Between late night committee meetings, weekends of services, and round-the-clock availability for counseling and crises, the demands of ministry all too often leave leaders feeling physically exhausted and spiritually limp. While we all know the importance of rest and renewal, it can be difficult to allow ourselves to take time out of our day to rest and renew our bodies and souls.

I'm bummed that I have to spend 15 bucks to find out how I can get some rest and renewal. Spending money to me isn't restful or renewing. Oh wel....
