Sharing the Alighted Flame

Confession of Sin

When we receive the flames of love and fail to share it.

God, have mercy.

When we share our gifts with those like us forgetting the poor and oppressed and imprisoned.

God, have mercy.

When we let fear, selfishness, apathy, or anxiety close us off from our neighbors.

God, have mercy.

Assurance of Pardon

God’s gift of grace belongs to each one of you. You are forgiven and beloved. God’s arms enfold you with hope and peace. Turn to your neighbor and share the healing power of Christ’s love.

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.
