Faith Communities in Transition
Every parish and mission has a different experience of what it is like when a Rector, Vicar, or Priest-in-Charge departs. This past year, a Transition Design team worked with the Rev. Christopher Craun to create a Guide to Transitions. We recognize that we cannot create a one-size fits all transition process, but we hope that this guide can help you along the way. Remember that transitions are an intervention into your system and require intentional prayer and discernment.
“Creating more possibilities is my favorite aspect of emergent strategy – this is where we shape tomorrow towards abundance.”
– Adrienne Maree Brown
