Confession & Assurance: Psalm 51

Prayer of Confession

Have mercy on me, God, according to your faithful love!

Wipe away my wrongdoings
according to your great compassion!

Wash me completely clean of my guilt;
purify me from my sin!

Because I know my wrongdoings,
my sin is always right in front of me. (Psalm 51:1-3 CEB)

Assurance of Grace

The boundless love of God has purified you with hyssop and second chances. Each one of you is beloved and forgiven, clean as new-fallen snow (inspired by Psalm 51:6-7)

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.
