I received a call from someone I was in a bible study group with this year. He’s wrestling through what to do when community breaks down. Details aren’t important. We’ve all experienced either A relationship or several in a group divide into factions and ultimately implode. It just varies with amplitude.

What’s the GUIDEPOST?

He asked me for advice. Knowing the situation, I told him that the goal is to end well; finish strong. He cannot control what every other person does or doesn’t do, believes or doesn’t believe. He can only control what he does and believes. it’s possible to navigate this kind of change with grace and kindness but it’s hard. I hope he takes the narrow path, does the hard thing and finishes well. It’s so much easier to walk away and leave an empty wake.
