Birth Pangs & Midwifery

Offering Invitation

The mother’s labor is beginning. She screams out at the birthpangs. We join in chorus, “the world is coming to an end!” forgetting that new life is born out of pain.  Choose to be a part of the new life. Share your skills, talents, and resources. Commit today to serve as midwife to God’s divine plan.

Offering Dedication

Holy One: May these gifts of time, talent, and wealth be midwives in the birthing of your realm on earth. Guide us that we use these gifts wisely and as you desire. 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.
