An Advent Invocation & Response

Invocation Scripture & Response Luke 1:1-4 CEB

Many people have already applied themselves to the task of compiling an account of the events that have been fulfilled among us.
They used what the original eyewitnesses and servants of the word handed down to us. 

Now, after having investigated everything carefully from the beginning, I have also decided to write a carefully ordered account for you, most honorable Theophilus. I want you to have confidence in the soundness of the instruction you have received. (Luke 1:1-4 CEB)
We are blessed by the gospel writers —  Luke, Matthew, Mark, and John who each wrote stories constructed to point us toward God. Amen.


Only the response above is original material. The first segment is a direct quotation from Luke 1:1-4, Common English Bible. It is modified to be read responsively.

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.
