God of Fragility

Come worship the Creator.
God made us,
in all our weaknesses,
frailties, & perfect imperfections.

If we are the image of God,
our strengths & weaknesses,
even our looks & gifts are of God.
God values us.
God loves us as we were created.
God dreams of a new earth with us.

Sometimes we seek false wholeness, pretending suffering & struggles do not exist or are moral failings.
Our savior knows suffering.
Our savior struggled.
Our savior embraced human fragility as one of us.

Let us worship our God,
who journeys with us,
whose healing comes
not only in joy but
in suffering & fragility.
Praise be to the God of
the cross and of the resurrection.

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.
