So It Is

It had been a long day.
The heat. The crowds. The life as it is expected.

He sensed something new with this man.
A breath, a wind swirled and blew.

They met as the noise of the day faded.
A patient breath taught a perceiving heart.

“So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8 NRSV).
Open our hearts to the wind sweeping through this room. Open our whole selves to your abundant 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.
