Come. Listen.

Come, children, listen to Jesus.
Jesus, teach us how to honor the Lord.

Do not jockey for power and position.
Jesus tells us, you don’t know what sitting at my side means.

Jesus tells us, that the one who wishes to be great must be a servant.
We relish the chance to enjoy good things.

Then keep your tongue from evil!
We will keep our lips from speaking lies!

Vow today to turn away from evil!
We seek good. We seek peace.

Come, children, listen to Jesus.
Teach us, Jesus, to be humble servants. Amen.

Based on Mark 10:35-45 and Psalm 34:11-14, Common English Bible translation

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.
