|Ron Kraybill should be worn out. He's spent 25 years working in places of severe conflict. he has worked to bring seething parties together. He has also trained others to do the same. He has faced his own exhaustion and seen it repeatedly in others. He's also encountered the sacred soil of wounded-ness. Properly tended, he's discovered that hard experiences can lead toward personal transformation. |
Restoring Those Who Help Others focuses on two essential practices--reflection and renewing oneself. Kraybill proposes disciplines for making sure those are part of life, despite day-today pressures.
