Message: “Helping While Hurting” from Matthew Dyer

A message from the series “When Everything Seems Broken.” The pandemic has taken its toll on all of us in various ways and to different degrees. As we struggle with our own losses, anxieties, discouragements, and practical needs, we are also aware that in many ways we are privileged. In our workplaces, neighborhoods, and society at large, there are so many people struggling financially, emotionally, and spiritually. As followers of Jesus and as compassionate people we want to help—but how can we find the energy to care for others when we ourselves are tired and hurting?
