Pastoral Burnout, Healing Spiritual Wounds and How To Hack and Election

meow_wolfAnyone who knows a few pastors probably knows someone who has struggled with burnout. Ministry always has been an atypical job with lots of unique demands and stressors, but as reported in a Barna Research Group study discussed in a new article called “Why Pastors Leave the Ministry,” it’s a growing trend.

Then author and pastor Carol Howard Merritt talks us through how to heal our spiritual wounds as laid out in her latest book called (not surprisingly) “Healing Spiritual Wounds.” Professional hacker and our CultureCast cyber-ethics guru Michael Collins tells us about an experience he had recently at a hackers’ conference where he watched teams of nerds hack into the very election machines used during the 2016 election. He even offers a surprising alternative that he thinks is the most secure way to keep our votes safe.

Christian recommends a book he hasn’t read yet, Amy tells you why you should get stuck in a dryer and, as always, she is afraid of…well if I told you, it wouldn’t be a surprise, now would it?
