Cure for burnout
« on: January 31, 2017, 12:32:57 AM »
Dear friends,

Since the end of last June, my church attendance has become highly irregular.  I think I'm going through a period of burnout.  I invited a parishioner out to lunch except I'm not having lunch with the parishioner anytime soon.  I hope I'm not subconsciously angry with said parishioner.

Kindly pray that I overcome my burnout and resume regular church attendance.  Also pray for me and the parishioner in that there's no anger between us.

In Christ,

SolEX01

Lord, have mercy.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.
