Wisdom for Your Weekend: Your regular installment of what we’ve been reading (and watching) from around the web. We gather the best and leave out the rest.
Wisdom - Weekend - Installment - Web - Chris
Wisdom for Your Weekend is your regular installment of what we’ve been reading (and watching) around the web. Presented to you by Chris Pappalardo, with guidance from Pastor J.D., this is our attempt to reflect Proverbs 9:9: “Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.” While we do not always agree with everything these authors post, we share these resources because we find them challenging and enriching. As we often say around the Summit, when it comes to reading, “Eat the fish and spit out the bones.”
Caring for the Care Team in Crisis Situations, Brad Hambrick. “Crises have a way of creating a variety of needs. Sometimes it is within the capacity of the care team to meet a particular need; other times it is not. Sometimes it is ‘caring’ to meet those needs; other times it can be ‘enabling.’ When a care team feels like it is the expectation of the church that they meet whatever need arises (i.e., ‘blank check’ assistance), the care team can feel burned and taken advantage of.”
