Now more than ever, clergy need resources for self-care as you navigate the uncharted waters of a pandemic! As you on the front lines know all too well, wellness and self-care are often at the bottom of most clergy persons' to-do list. Here is a book that addresses this issue in a gentle and holistic way.
Sue Magrath is a retired psychotherapist and spiritual director, currently a writer, church/clergy consultant, retreat and workshop leader. Her book, My Burden is Light: A Primer for Clergy Wellness, has been a lifeline for many during this crisis. It draws on her long years of experience working with clergy in a wide variety of contexts as well as a background in mental health and spiritual formation.
