Change is in the air. I could feel it this morning as I walked the dogs. A little cooler, maybe a little crisper. Oh, we'll still have a couple more warm, maybe even hot, days- but autumn is on the way.
My family, like yours, is experiencing change. Our kids are getting older- even if we're not!
Our church is certainly in a period of significant change. The biggest challenge may be the simple fact that the most immediate changes are only stepping stones to even bigger changes.
It's probably not a bad thing for all of us to be reminded that change really isn't a four-letter word!
Brian McLaren offers the following prayer in his book, Naked Spirituality:
All that I'm now going through
Will make me better or bitter,
Break down or breakthrough.
Learning this patience-- it takes so much patience.
It's a great education,
But why is the tuition so high?
Why God, why?
