Leadership Summit Exhaustion

I've never felt so tired after a Leadership Summit. Every break, every lunch and sometimes after the final session, I've been meeting with people, giving tours, swapping ministry ideas, and processing the Summit. I'm just plain worn out. I feel like I've given everything I've got for the past three days...I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow and then I'm away on a retreat for two days. Pray for energy friends! If anyone wants to sit down and talk about any of the ideas that I've posted from the Summit, I'd love to get together (at least for those of you in central IL). Hope my posts have been beneficial, although my sister told me last night that she got onto this blog yesterday and was so overwhelmed that she couldn't even begin to read it!

Like you, I was exhausted by the time the summit ended. Within 30 minutes of getting home, my head was ready to hit the pillow.

I'm disturbed (maybe too strong a word, but I'll stick with it) that I'm uncertain about my holy discontent. I know that small groups that refuse to move from 'milk' to 'meat' bother me... a lot. But I'm not sure that I'd call it a holy discontent.

Jack Groppel struck home. Not a lot of balance between stress and recovery right now. Not as much 'energy' available in 3 of the 4 categories as I would like.

This was my first leadership summit - hopefully not my last. Invigorating and challenging!
