Ep. 92: Ken Wytsma on Chronic Pain, Compassion Fatigue, and a Theology of Suffering

Ken Wytsma discusses his journey from being a high-achieving leader to one slowed down by chronic illness and how this has made him relook at his identity. Throughout this conversation, Ken shares a lot of wisdom gained from doing pastoral and justice work for decades, including how to go at a sustainable pace.

Ken is a pastor, entrepreneur, and thought-leader. He is the founder of The Justice Conference, which has reached over thirty thousand people across eleven countries with a message on a theology of justice and God’s call to give our lives away.

Ken is also the author of Pursuing Justice, The Grand Paradox, Create vs. Copy, Redeeming How We Talk, The Myth of Equality, which was named as one of the Top-Five Religion Books of 2017 by Publishers Weekly.
