LIFE TRANSITIONS


transitions 300

As Christians meet and get to know people in their communities through social action, what might become apparent are the change of circumstances that people are journeying through. This may be caused by family breakdown, loss of a job, death of a loved one, etc. It may be several of these factors combined together.

People in such circumstances are in a state of ‘unexpected’, often painful transition from an old phase of life that has ended, towards a new phase that is beginning. Handling the perceived and real stress caused by such events may be difficult for many – we all have a different capacity to handle change.

In this Deeper Look article, we take a look at transitions and it is our hope that this gives you a deeper understanding of the effects of change and how you might approach helping people in their journey towards the new.
