Part 2

Part 2 of a compelling conversation, on sabbatical know-how. Dr. Chris Adams and and Rev. Dr. Margie Bryce, illuminate the significance of a sabbatical as a powerful tool for rejuvenation. But the relief doesn’t end there – they also reveal how gradual re-entry to work can save you from feeling overwhelmed, guiding you towards a softer landing back into ministry.

Moreover, their conversation ventures into the beautiful tension between structure and spontaneity during a sabbatical. They explore the significance of humility in accepting advice and fostering self-care, leaving room for God to move and speak, and striking that perfect balance between meticulous planning and serendipitous moments.
