“Come!” you call out to us.
And we make up excuses.

“Come!” you call out to us.
And we come half-heartedly.

“Come!” we call out to you.
Forgetting you’ve already issued an invitation to us.

When you call, move us to respond.
Robe us in your royalty,
transform us fully into
citizens of your Realm.

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.
