There is something about ministry that can leave us feeling like there are fewer hours from one week to the next: events, midweeks, meetings, discipleship, programs, curriculum, and Sundays. And just when you think you’ve got a rhythm figured out, you find your week upended and wonder how you’re chasing the clock again. Time management in ministry can be tricky, to say the least. And setting boundaries can lead us to feel some discomfort, self-doubt, and worry about whether things will get done between Sundays (or done to your liking, but that’s a different article about different boundaries). It can also leave us uncertain about where to draw the line between working and serving, or if there is a line at all. That’s why we need to learn to set boundaries, maintain balance, use discernment, and create habits that last.
