Sunday next will somewhat rock the world as I know it. That evening all of Cordova Stake is invited to a special meeting where new ward boundaries and names will be announced.
New wards, new leadership, new callings, and even a strong possibility of changing buildings.
Rumors, speculation, nostalgia!
Indications are that this will be no minor adjustment, but possibly an entire new shake up. We are all considering our friends, neighbors and leaders - wondering who we will be sitting with next week - and where. We know there are people we will miss seeing and working with regularly. I am thinking how fond I am of our particular building.
There is a little anxiety and maybe a little excitement. We have long known that our ward and our sister ward have been struggling in many areas. But, we are,nonetheless, fond our of our ward, our ward family. We are praying to accept the changes with faith and trust in our leaders.
Plans, programs, neighbors, and leaders may change, but the gospel remains eternally the same and true.
