We Have Decided

They were repairing the Temple and found an old scroll. 
They took it to King Josiah. 

A faithful king, Josiah recognized the Torah, the word of God.
Committed to following God, Josiah read it to the people.

They, too, wanted to be the people God called them to be.
They re-committed their lives to God.

Like King Josiah, I have decided to follow God.
We, too, have decided to follow the way of love and justice.

Let’s decide. Let’s recommit today to living our lives fully as God requires. Amen! Amen! Amen! (louder with each “Amen”)

*Hymn I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

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.
