In this Life Together Digest, the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), discusses church worker wellness. Describing the joys and challenges of church work, he notes the importance of bearing one another’s burdens as the church.

“As the church, we are called to see and to bear the burdens of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Just as your church workers serve and care for you, consider how you can serve and care for them. … ‘Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ’ (Gal. 6:2),” says Harrison.

Harrison provides updates on LCMS Church Worker Wellness, including an awareness campaign and new resources in development for church workers. To learn more about Church Worker Wellness, visit lcms.org/wellness.
