September 6, 2017  — We will meet at 7 pm to discuss "Saying Goodbye: A Time of Growth for Congregations and Pastors" by Edward White.  In 21 years of pastoral ministry, White saw 91 colleagues leave congregations unhappily and painfully.  In this book, he shares wisdom from his own experiences and those of others on how the time of pastoral transition can be a time of meaning, growth and even hope.  He includes reflections from other pastors when "goodbyes" have genuinely been good and "God be with you" occasions.  He also offers resources to help congregations deal with their feelings and look to their futures and learn to live with uncertanity.  This can be a very timely study for us.  Please let Pastor Dave know if you plan on attending.
