We Know We Can Do Better

Reconciling with God & Neighbor

Confession of Sin

Holy One, We confess we are not the people we can be. We pretend we are doing our best when we know we can do better. Too often we know what we ought to do and don’t do it. Forgive us! Reinvigorate our drive to love as actively as Christ did on earth.

Assurance of Pardon

No matter the choices you’ve made, no matter your mistakes, and motivations, hear this: God loves you! God has not given up on you. You are God’s delight. You are God’s beloved. Share this love with your neighbor.

*Passing of the Peace

You Are God’s Beloved

As Are You

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.
