What has culturally transpired over the last few months will reveal that some in positions of authority are no longer suited to lead those they serve into a new and unfolding future. This will not be a personal indictment or an attack on a leader’s character. It will simply be the realization that a mismatch of gifts and assignments has taken place.
In the coming year, some leaders will step down from places of authority or be asked to do so. These decisions will be made on local and national levels and within the Church.
The decisions made to initially assign these leaders in their current roles were made based on what was known at the time. But now, the context of their assignment has changed. Assignments that seemed right before the current upheaval took place will no longer bear fruitful outcomes. Those involved in reassigning these individuals must make their decisions with compassion and understanding in order for the grace of God to rest upon the process.
