After my wife had been involved in a major MVA, I booked a series of events that were take us both out of ministry for about four hours without no contact via any electronic devise. I called it my "red dot night". While she was recovering my ministry suffered some which uktimately led to the church I was serving not renewing my contract. One of the best pieces of advise I ever received was from a doctor after I went into acute depression when this information was relayed to me second hand and told that I was too old for the church (57). She said "grab a good book, find a quite place, and gel". We continue in ministry (I'm now 65) and look forward to God's blessings as we both seek his will for a continuing ministry where ever He will lead us.
