The Commandment We Brag About Breaking

by | Jul 1, 2021 | Leadership, Podcasts, Team Development

We wear busyness as badges of honor—both inside and outside of the church. We believe lies about rest because we find our value and identity in our work. The American Church culture values doing ministry at a breakneck speed, but burnout rates are quickly growing. Listen in on this lively conversation as Anh Johnson talks with Eric Byrd about the importance of following one of the easiest commandments to break and how to practically make Sabbath a reality.
