My Brain Hurts
Did Jesus' brain ever hurt? Was he ever overwhelmed by the needs and the activity and excitement around him ? We know that he found regular moments of sneaking away to be with His Father. Were those preventative or restorative? Probably a mixture of both.
My brain hurts right now. It's all really exciting stuff- a new semester launching, a mission trip to Kenya, an opportunity to publish some small group curriculum, brainstorming the next chapter of the arts at NCC, gearing up for The Story and Theology 101, preparing for the Alpha Getaway this weekend, etc...
I spent several hours last night brainstorming with some folks about next steps for part of our small groups ministry, and my brain hurts now. Not in a bad way...but still hurting. I'm so thankful for the place God has put me and the amazing team he has given me to work with.
