Bask in the Joy of Love

Each blade of grass,
And each hair upon our heads, 
were completed by the Creator.
And God rested on the seventh day.

Like the Creator loved Jesus,
Jesus loved his disciples.
“Remain in my love and keep my commandments,” he said.

Look within. Look at your neighbor.
There is manifest the image of God.
The love of the One brings us joy.

Bask in the joy of the One within and between us.
Praise to the One: to the Creator, the Christ, and the Spirit. 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.
