BOOK NOTES: The Ministry Marathon, by Tim Wright and Lori Woods
They use the word “marathon” as an acronym: “Massage your mind, Adjust your attitude, Replenish your resources, Affirm your affections, Track Your Time, Hone your heart, Own up to others, Nurture your nature.”
This book is an easy read with several wisdom nuggets. It serves as a good reminder of the importance of clergy self care. As a person who tends to sprint through life, the book challenged me to live a healthier lifestyle.
Thanks to Rev. Candace Adams, pastor at Hope Presbyterian Church in Spicer, Minnesota, for this recommendation.
