Our Transition Team met this past Sunday night after a six week break for all our church and family Christmas activities. There was a strong sense of joy as everyone reconnected to complete the remaining work on the congregational self study. The eleven of us have gotten very close to one another over the last seven months.
The plan is for the Transition Team to spend the next six weeks working on the Embracing task and then six more weeks working on the Examining task before the annual church elections in April. The team will then return to the Embracing task which includes a good closure of the interim period and a clean exit of the intentional interim pastor.
The next blog will provide details about the upcoming “Pastoral Expectations Survey” that the Transition Team is preparing for the congregation.
