Do leaders and members of your ELCA congregation ever feel burned out in the midst of the vital work they do for your Lutheran congregation and your community?

Alan Shelton, a family physician, offers his book "Transforming Burnout: A Simple Guide to Self Renewal," as a practical guide for ministers, lay leaders and congregation members experiencing compassion fatigue.

"Transforming Burnout" tells a personal story of burnout, teaches us how to recognize and face it, and leads us to spiritual strength and renewed vitality through daily habits that encourage whole health.

Alan is an experienced workshop leader at lay minister retreats and feels called to continue speaking on the subject of burnout and renewal.
