Ep 22: Burnout & Rest - Ken Shigematsu

Impactus podcast

The one common element in almost every man is that they feel exhausted. COVID blurred lines between work and home, the pressure to survive and pay bills, or to achieve the next promotion are consistently pressuring men to keep going. We’ve been taught the Bible verses like Matthew 11:28-30, where Jesus invites everyone who feels weary and burdened to come to him and he will give us rest. This sounds great in theory, but are there ways for men to experience this rest for our souls in reality? With more access to various digital devices, how can a man intentionally connect with God each day without it feeling like a burden and just one more thing to do? Listen to this podcast with Ken Shingematsu, the author of Survival Guide for the Soul: How to Flourish Spiritually in a World, as he reminds us of the importance of spiritual practices and how we can receive complete rest in this demanding world by experiencing a deeper relationship with Christ.

In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im are joined by Ken Shigematsu, Senior Pastor of Tenth Church in Vancouver, BC, and author of God in My Everything and Survival Guide for the Soul. During their conversation, they discuss how meditation can make us more compassionate and his rule of life.BEST QUOTES"A lot of us who believe in God would say 'I believe God loves me,' but we often still function as though our true value is determined by what we do and how others view us.""It's been interesting to learn about how spiritual practice connects with neuroscience and the way we actually experience life.""After the 15 to 20 minutes of meditation is up I feel a bit more relaxed and throughout the day I feel more focused and aware of the presence of Jesus in my life.""When we take time for the care of our soul to connect with God to receive from Him, it's not a selfish thing, it means we have more to offer to the people around us.""Of course we want to grow in size, but the most important thing is to determine what is in God's mind and heart and to live that out.""Our commitment to serve the poor has invited the Spirit's presence to be more richly present.""When we engage in a simple thanksgiving exercise, it will start to seem like more good things are coming into our lives even though that may not be objectively true.""It's not just about surviving, it's about really thriving.""If you are working in a factory, then the hours that you put in will directly correlate with your production, but if you are working in a world that requires presence or wisdom, then after you work a certain amount of hours, your presence will drop off."RECOMMENDED RESOURCESLifeway Leadership Podcast NetworkSurvival Guide for the Soul by Ken ShigematsuGod in My Everything by Ken ShigematsuCentering Prayer AppReimagining the Examen AppTenth Church @KenShigematsu on Twitter
