Demons Among the Stones of the Dead

Prayer of Confession

We confess we cling to the demons we know and wander among the stones of the dead. We bind ourselves to the that which is unhealthy for humanity because we cannot imagine the Beloved Community. Open our spirits, make us willing to let go of the familiarity of the status quo for your kin_dom. Amen.

Assurance of Grace

God dreams so much for each of you, for each of us. Do not be afraid. You do not need the demons. What God is creating for humanity is filled with joy and peace and enough for everyone. This is the Good News. 

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.
