Burnout or Resilience? LCF Day Conference in Manchester
The Christian professional can often feel overstretched, working in an environment that is both demanding and pressured, whilst hostile towards God and those who serve him. Building resilience to deal with the pressures is not an optional extra, but a requirement.
The Bible is realistic about the pressures faced by those associated with serving God and his people in difficult circumstances. For us as professionals, there may be some differences. Yet exceptional mental and physical strain still lead to exhaustion and a sense that circumstances are out of control, even out of God's control. Depression, fear and self-pity can take over and it can be easy to lose eye contact with the Lord in this state of breakdown.
But God has a prescription for our body, mind and soul that is applicable as a remedy as much as a preventative. This leads to a more balanced view of God's world and God's plan for our life and service within it.
Join us for a day of teaching, exploration and practical application, as we grapple with these vital issues and principles, whatever your professional calling and your current circumstances.
This conference is open to all including spouses, and friends.
