Gathering & Clinging

Invocation

Creating Spirit,

We gather among friends,
seeking your love, wisdom,
& guidance.
We squeeze into this small space,
    to be with others who seek you.

Though we know you are always
present here, on that hill faraway,
and in the very blood that flows
in our veins,
we call on you now.

In a world of so much
    we don’t understand,
         we cling to the old rugged
             cross,
     a symbol of your love for us.
Amen.                                        

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.
