As school doors release eager children in many places for summer vacation this month, throngs of overseas workers transition to home assignment or finish up terms. Others stock up on vitamins, clothes, and shoes and say tearful goodbyes to family as they yet again return to their home on the other side of the ocean. There are farewell parties and yard sales, empty team meetings and lonely days for those left behind.
This week we are starting a four-week transition series. Come find your place as we explore leaving, staying, furlough and returning. How does God hold you steady in whatever stage you are in? What are the joys and struggles in each season?
This week we will turn our focus to those who are finishing. How can we help our sisters leave well? Come share your tips, thoughts and prayers at The Grove, and join us over on Instagram with the hashtag #VelvetAshesLeaving.
