. . . in the middle of Life . . .
Even the most charmed life has its difficult aspects and is in need of a blessing.
Even when life is going well, an articulated blessing enhances and clarifies well being.
When life's story seems messed up, a blessing opens a way forward.
Note your situation and submit it. We will return a blessing at our earliest opportunity.
There have been many interpretations of the Christian Scriptures (Genesis to Revelation, including the Apocrypha) that have constricted spirits and lives. We are committed to reading and re-reading, reading the surface of words and their depths, to find an expansive and expanding perspective.
Note a Scripture that has been bedeviling you. We will return a comment reminding you of inherent belovedness.
Like individuals in need of a blessing, congregations can get confused, depressed, disorganized, or simply off-center for any number of reasons clergy malfeasance, disputed mission, demographic changes, death of a key leader, theological differences, and so many more. A pause and reorientation beyond their usual processes and resources is needed. During this transitional interim time an intentional process is helpful to:
- remember past blessings
- implement a new beginning
- energize lay leadership
- renew religious-tradition roots
- prepare for new pastoral leadership
With training from the Interim Ministry Network, rostered with the United Methodist Transitional/Interim Ministry Specialists (TIMS), and 6-1/2 years of sucessful intentional transitional/interim experience in three pastoral settings, I am available for consultation regarding intentional ministry.
Note your circumstance and contact information. We will be in touch to see what can be worked out.
