Sometimes it can feel like we have huge burdens of responsibility placed on us and we don't know how to let them go or catch our breath.  When the things you usually enjoy or have a sense of accomplishment from seem fruitless, or when your bad days outnumber your good days at work or home, you may be moving beyond just tired to burning out.  And that can be a great deal more difficult to recover from.  So what can help renew us or bring us back to life--or offer some guardrails to help keep us from going over the edge of a cliff--when we find ourselves headed in the wrong direction like that?  That's the conversation we're having on this episode of Crazy Faith Talk, as part of our Eastertide series on "what gives life."  Pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve will explore their own personal tells that warn them they're headed into something like burnout, as well as what can be helpful for life in the church as well as all of our areas of life for being renewed when we're worn down and weary.  In a conversation that ranges from Studio Ghibli movies to Brother Lawrence's "Practicing the Presence of God" to Jesus taking naps in boats and Elijah complaining to God, there's an entry point here for you.  Check out this week's Crazy Faith Talk.
