August 18: Rev. Dr. Paul Britner: Following Your Bliss. There’s a tension between the need for self-care and the duty to serve the greater good, such as when parents sacrifice their happiness for their children or when dedicated employees or volunteers make personal sacrifices for the good of an organization—including a church. How do you find happiness among all the competing demands in our lives.
