Here is the question…
The 12 Step Spiritual Journey group that I am an apprentice leader for, is about to disband for two months. The reason is that our two co-leaders are burned out. They’ve been leading this group for years and they need a break. It is a hard group to lead as there are hurt feelings, raw feelings, and women who are struggling to become emotionally healthy. It does take a toll on a person. So, the co-leaders spoke with the leader over all small groups at our church and they decided to take two months off, re-evaluate what the group should be, and then come back together in August.
I am worried that this would be a very bad thing for some of the women in our group. Lately there have not been as many women attending the group but summer schedules do tend to get in the way. But for those women who are really moving forward, I’d hate for them to hit a brick wall. One thing that we work on in our group is getting past our feelings of rejection and this could seem the same as rejectcion for them.
I’m thinking of asking if I could carry on the group during this 2 month hiatus so that there is still an oasis for these hurting women.
I sure wouldn’t mind if anyone who reads this would pray that if this is to be, God would make the way.
