I found a place where I could share the pain of ministry and find support. I found...a place where we were honest with each other about the difficulty of leading… and received support and encouragement. The [envnironment] enabled me to have the strength and support to stay through the storm to see what might be on the other side. I'm not sure that we are on the other side of the storm yet but, facing the storm together is far better than going it alone.
