“I want to be able to share the ups and downs but not sound like I am complaining. . .”
“I’ve read about people who are presenting to their church staff about chronic illness, but that makes me too nervous. . .”
“A deacon came by to visit me last week and she told me I looked fabulous and that the tests I had to have later that day were ‘no big deal.’ I wish I could gracefully give her some tips, but I don’t want to hurt her feelings.”
We have a wonderful new tool! A DVD with 24 tips of 2-3 minutes each that are perfect for a church staff to watch. You could give a copy of this DVD to the women’s ministry director, perhaps the pastor’s wife who you heard is chronically ill. Encourage your congregational care team to watch a couple of tips each meeting. We would love to hear your ideas. This year let’s all go BEYOND CASSEROLES!
