Summary

Church elders today sacrifice and serve, often without training or resources. The result can be discouragement, a sense of failure, or burnout. When crises come how do elders find nurture for their own spirits? In the midst of trouble, how do elders shepherd the flock, as did the Compassionate One, with tender mercies?
