Comings and Goings is a blog written by Theology, Formation, and Evangelism Director Charles B. "Chip" Hardwick as he travels throughout the church. God is on the move out and about in the world, working to redeem all things in Jesus Christ. As we join this mission, by the power of the Spirit we see God on the move. This blog contains glimpses of how Chip finds this to be true in his comings and goings.

In our house we have a scale. I've been thinking about that scale as I have worked on publishing "A Pastoral Rule." I had two reactions to the Rule. On the one hand, it was energizing. On the other hand . . .
Pastoral leadership is hard work. The challenge of sustaining faithful service to Jesus Christ and those who seek to follow him is real. And it is an abiding challenge. How can it be done? A group of PC(USA) pastors, council leaders, and professors has gathered together elements from the tradition's wisdom, and offer "A Pastoral Rule" to PC(USA) pastors for today's challenges.
