Trouble in River City

We just found out the pastor of our church is leaving some time next month. It’s a rather sad day. Out church is very small and I don’t know if it’ll survive. Although they can get an itinerant pastor, it’s not the same as a regular one.

The pastor had some conflict with some of the members about a year ago. I don’t know if that is the reason he is going or not. I would be surprised if he admitted to it. Perhaps he just wants to retire. I think he is 65, but that doesn’t seem that old for a pastor to retire.

I’m disappointed.

I think we all have been through yout situation with you pastor leaving. It's sometimes difficult
depends on which side of the fence your on.
However Faith gets through it and many times the change can be refreshing. Thats the way the church politics work. God works in many different ways.
