A group that I have found helpful in some of my interims is the Transition Monitoring Team. The team is to be composed of twenty people from different groups (ages, occupations, interests, proponents, critics) in the congregation: ten selected by the elders, ten volunteers.
We have three items each month.
- Report from the grapevine—what people are saying.
- Read a chapter from William Bridges’ book, Transitions: Making Sense of Life’s Changes, and share a “mustard seed” from it.
- Tell how you are doing with the transition in this church and with others transitions in your life.
