In basketball this month is called March Madness. This is the month of playoffs that leads to the final four teams of which the winner is crowned the champion.
This month for our church I would like to call March Gladness. It is the official month that we begin to prepare for transition in pastoral leadership. Transition involves times of uncertainty. In the moments of uncertainty believers should learn to trust God. Trusting God means we are learning to accept the fact that God is in control and that we are learning to accept His will for the outcome of an uncertain situation.
As we prepare for transition in pastoral leadership let me encourage you to do what every minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ should do as we serve our Lord.
We are trusting God for a new leader and we are trusting God for a renewed people in this time of transition. Know that I love you.
