“I Want to Be a Healthy Pastor”
One of our Thriving Rural Communities Pastors, Rev. Grace Hackney of Cedar Grove UMC, recently wrote a profound reflection for Duke’s Clergy Health Initiative regarding what it might mean to be a truly healthy pastor in mind, body, and spirit. For Grace, a healthy pastor requires a healthy church community: just as the health of a church community depends upon the presence of a healthy pastor. Genuine health arises from daily decisions and appointments and reminders that are made in the midst of a healthy community’s life.
