Ministers are committed and trained to being with persons in times of challenge. The pastors at the Presbyterian Church of Barrington especially like to hear from members when life changes occur and to help in bringing the faith of the community of the church to bear on making sense of these changes and finding a way forward. People are welcome to let us know of both joys and concerns. This is part of knitting ourselves together as the household of God and offering Christian care.
“My conviction is that religious questions and reflections about the meaning of what is holy or ultimate arise at times of crisis in the life of the individual and of the community. These crises may be historical or personal events, but because of them we are forced to respond to a new situation. The question of the meaning of our identity and our attitude toward life is challenged. A crisis is a time of change, anxiety and possibility. Something new happens, and we summon resources from the past, as well as discover new strengths, to deal with the implications of our changed situation.” Penelope Washbourn
