Liminal Space

Liminal Space: (from the Latin, līmen, or threshold) a place of being in between, of waiting; “a unique spiritual position where human beings hate to be but where the Biblical God is always leading them.  It is when you have left the tried and true, but have not yet been able to replace it with anything else.  It is when you are finally out of the way.  It is when you are between your old comfort zone and any possible new answer.  If you are not trained in how to hold anxiety, you will run … anything to flee this terrible cloud of unknowing.” (Richard Rohr)

I have been living in the liminal space for quite some time now with out having words to describe it other than exhausting.  Now I am in a place where I am leading people into that place of leaving their comfort zones but without a reality clearly defined for them for their next phase.  It is one of the hardest places in leadership to be.  Lord give me strength.
