*Mission Focus for August – Transitions

Aug 05, 2018

The mission focus for August is Transitions.  Beth and Rick W.’s neighborhood has been acutely aware of transitions because a widower on their block has slowly become more and more confused and unsafe in his daily activities.  It has taken a neighborhood to provide him with meals, report to his children when he is confused, and finally, to call the department of aging when his children bowed to his resistance to transitioning out of his home.

Change is hard.  Part of it is fear of the unknown: a new place to live, new friends, a new school or classroom and teacher.  How can our faith in an ever-present God mitigate those fears?  How do you deal with change?
