Imagine a Savior

We waited.
And imagined a savior. 

We imagined power.
One like the world but stronger and on our side. 

We imagined a king on a white horse wielding a sword.
We got a baby born in a stable among the livestock. 

We imagined the work done for us through the destruction of our enemies.
We receive a baby who will teach us our calling to seek reconciliation and to love expansively. 

Praise be to God for the unexpected babe of Bethlehem.
Praise to the wisdom of love. 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.
