And we run.

*Prayer of Confession responsive

You call, God.
And we run.

You point, God.
And we go the other way.

We hide from you, God.
And you seek us out.

We get angry at you, God.
And you wait patiently.

We pout & grumble at you, God.
And you listen.

We judge you when you fail to
be like our image of you, God.
And you love us anyway.

And when we are ready, you touch us with a sliver of your wisdom.
And we relax into your ways.

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.
