I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.—Isaiah 43:19 (NRSV)

God is doing new things. And … I hate change. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that I’m uncomfortable with change, with new things.

Here are a few resources for times of transition:

1. Stay With Me, a poem by Ann Freeman Price.

2. Disorientation, an article by Johnny Sears.

3. A video from the Alive Now archives. Beth A. Richardson, editor of Alive Now reflects on "Transformation" and the challenges of change and transitions. July/August 2014.
