Trained for what has passed, mystified, yet unable to turn back

From Alan Roxburgh in The Sky is Falling, an excerpt of an e-mail he received from a pastor:

One of the most difficult weights I carry right now is how to be a leader in what I call a “chaotic” church. I have trained for what is passing and has passed and I know it.  As nice as it would be to find myself comfortable again (or at least not quite as mystified all the time), I know I cannot personally turn back.

Yes, this!
