The Good News of Love

Gather around as we celebrate
    the gospel of the risen Christ.
We’re ready to spread
    the gospel to those across
      the globe and here in Condon.

The Good News of the risen Christ
with its abundance of love is for all
peoples.
We’re not ashamed of the gospel! (1)

It is God’s own power for salvation
to all who have faith in God. (1)
It was shared first with Jesus’ own
    people, the Jews,
        then the Gentiles, and
            then “all the nations”.

God’s righteousness is revealed
through the gospel. (1)
Praise be for the gospel,
    which guides us in our
         faithfulness and our faith.

Let us worship.
Let us worship the source of
     life-giving love!

Praise be to God!
Praise be to the One!

Tim is a runner, a hiker, a devoted husband, a father of two adult children, and their spouses, and a grandfather of four perfect children. A former early childhood educator, Tim is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He has served as pastor of both Disciples and United Church of Christ congregations. As we enter what we hope is the final phase of the pandemic, Tim is beginning a journey of rediscovering himself and discerning next steps. He writes from his home in Albany, Oregon and wherever the Spirit lures him.
