Synopsis

The problem of burn-out among clergy and Christian staff has been noted and discussed, but it can happen to church members too when a heavy load falls on few shoulders.

These notes first explore two parts of the problem

  1. Why burn-out happens (family, work, health, church)
  2. The effect it has (physical, mental, spiritual, relationships)

And then propose two parts of a solution

  1. An education programme for church leaders (seven ideas to consider)
  2. Other practical ideas to ease the burden (seven more suggestions)
