That We Hear AND Listen

Jesus tells the disciples for a third time what is to come:
The Human One will be handed over…They will ridicule him, spit on him, torture him, and kill him. After three days, he will rise up.” (Mark 10:33–34 CEB)

And they still don’t hear him. 
They bicker over who gets to sit at his right hand.

Listen. In this hour, listen to the Divine.
God of all, Open our ears that we hear you. Open our spirits and minds that we comprehend your call. Help us to be and do as you will no matter the cost. Amen.

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.
