We Begin a Journey

L: Ashes reminded us,
P: We begin a journey.

L: It will not be easy. It may not be what we expected.
P: It probably won’t be how we imagine but we know God is by our side.

L: Prepare for the journey starting with prayer and meditation.
P: We will reflect on the past, we will be still in the present, and we will listen for the future.

L: The Spirit is afoot dancing and shimmering in front of us.
P: We begin today in worship. We choose to follow Jesus through the wilderness.

L: And so our journey begins.

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.
