Rediscovering faith in the midst of crisis: One Pastor's story

“Trust in God, in concert with trust in the people of my congregation, has transformed my ministry into a light burden. It is like feeling the ‘good tired’ after a long point in a competitive tennis match.” With those words, the Rev. Edward Horstmann encapsulates the outcome of his sabbatical experience, supported by a grant from the Lilly Endowment. Horstmann’s description of his recovery of deep faith in God in the midst of personal crises and professional stress is a story for all clergy and contains insights that can be adopted even when a sabbatical is not on the horizon. Read Horstmann's story, "Opening the Door to Wonder: The Enduring Gift of Sabbatical," provided by Resources for American Christianity, to learn more about how in learning how to trust, he rediscovered his faith in the midst of crisis.
