Clergy in Transition Postlude

Honestly?   Clergy in Transition Postlude

Honestly?   While some former church members have a difficult time with the fact I can no longer perform pastoral duties, a big part of this issue is mine!  Hardly a day goes that I don’t want to pick up the phone to call a former member – just to “check in” or “see how things are going”.  This was my style in doing ministry.  The problem:  I would probably also be asking how things are going with the church.  What “behind the scenes issues” are in play?  After 27 years of ministry, I am still heavily invested in not only how things are going with members but also with the programs and ministries of the church.  It’s hard letting go!
