Creating Rhythms of Rest

With Christmas just right around the corner, we know it can be easy for you to get lost in the work of preparing for one of the most important weeks in the church year. There are a thousand things to prepare for in a normal year, and with everything else we are facing in 2020 it feels like the work never ends.

Here’s the thing, as you and your team edge closer and closer to burn out, you become less and less effective. This season we want you to remember that a rhythm of rest is built into the process of creation and has been ever since the beginning. So while there is work to be done, make sure to take some time to refresh and refuel. Here at Blackbaud, we want to help in every way we can, big and small; so today, here are a few resources we recommend that can help you grow and develop as a leader and team while you take some well-earned rest before, after, and even during the busiest season of the year:
