Fruit that Ripens At the Right Time

Prepare yourselves for worship.
We gather to worship the One
   who binds us all together

Seek to be truly happy.
We strive to avoid evil advice
    and the road of sin.

Listen for God’s instruction.
When we listen we find happiness.

Be like the tree replanted by streams of water.
We trust in God that when we love
    and act justly God’s fruit will ripen
       at just the right time.

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.
