Followers of the Baby

Christ has arrived as an infant.
As one who teaches us to be vulnerable.
As one whose every need must be fulfilled by love.

As a human baby, Christ will grow and change. Learn and strive. Yearn and hope. Love and grieve.
Christ is one of us. Christ teaches us. Christ points us toward the divine.

Go out and be human, like Jesus. Go out and strive to love as the witness of the baby turned prophet and rabbi teaches.
We go out as followers of Jesus, as Christ’s people. 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.
