Faithfulness During Ministry and Family Transitions

What does it mean to be faithful in transitions when excitement and hope are scrambled with uncertainty and chaos? Good question. My husband and I anticipated and prepared for the upcoming transitions and changes of this past summer. We had known for over a year that the senior pastor that my husband worked beside was moving at the end of June. We had met numerous times with the departing pastoral couple, our dear co-labourers and friends of almost four years. The goal was to glean wisdom and insight from their 11 years of experience in our small town. Church camp and the farewell party added to the busyness but were successfully executed in their last month with us. Our personal “summer” holidays had been booked for May anticipating extra demands of work in summer. And a young but experienced pastor, who had been hired to step in as co-pastor with my husband, would arrive in July.
