Be Still

We are made for more.
More than work, worry, & doing.

We are made for the Sabbath.
To be present with the divine spirit of hope, truth, & love.

Just as the creating One rested,
we too rest.
We too must rejuvenate and reboot. 

Trust enough to let go.
To let go of control,
to let go of anxiety,
and the way of the world.

Be present. Be with. Be still.

Tim is a former early childhood educator, a runner, a hiker, a devoted husband, father of two adult children, their spouses, and a grandfather of four perfect children. Tim is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Tim 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.
