GARBC Newsletter for Your Ministry
SEPTEMBER 2011

BALANCE—what does that word mean to you? The teeter-totter of life presents us with work vs. rest, patience vs. action, silence vs. words. Either side can slam down quickly! Ecclesiastes 3 reminds us, “To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” As you approach a busy fall season of ministry, think about the need for balance. This issue of Synergy includes two articles to stimulate your thinking on that topic; one addresses work and rest, and the other addresses your leadership approach. Hopefully you are in ministry for the long haul—think about the long-term benefits of balance!

Synergy is ready for your viewing!
