Christian Advice for the Overworked

how to work with less energy

Work With Less Energy
Grant
~1955

Are you overworked? Can’t meet those deadlines? Forget your calendar and to-do list! God wants you to take a moment and look around. Rev. Grant came to an epiphany one day after watching people work:

I am not sure that more modern, mainstream clergy would necessarily disagree with the intent, but probably would do it with a softer sell.
