|Congregation Leaders 2011-16|
I’m so aware that this time of change is filled with a mix of feelings. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for all of the blessings we have known….people, experiences, accomplishments, God’s presence with us through it all. At the same time, there is sadness whenever we, or those whom we have grown accustomed to being in partnerships with, are moving on. Life will be different. All kinds of people are affected, those who are left behind and those who are awaiting the arrival of a new community or ministry partner. In anticipation of what is to come they know that God’s blessings are always abundant, even as they recognize that some anxiety is a part of any transition.
How have you experienced change?
