Most of us probably do not like change. Change makes most of us uncomfortable. We like the familiar and so, when faced with a transition, we can find ourselves tense as we might feel uncertain about the change. This is completely understandable. But life is about change. Change is also a reality in local churches. One change that local churches must face is the transition to receiving a new shepherd. This can be both exciting and tense, a reality that is revealed for us in these final verses of Numbers 27.
