Release Us From Repetition

Prayer of Confession Together
Divine One: Our world is filled with struggles. Sometimes we make the wrong choice. Sometimes we have regrets and sometimes we know we would be tempted and do it again. Release us from repeating our mistakes. Though we wrestle with life and with you, please forgive us. Amen

Assurance of Grace
Know this: God wrestles with you freely. God chooses relationship despite your mistakes and failures. God forgives you and dreams of the day when you live into the image of God in which you are created. The Good News is that no matter what, you are God’s beloved. Share the Good News.

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.
