Christ is Risen!

It feels like a pre-celebration. 
Christ is Risen!

It doesn’t feel right when we are apart. 
Christ is Risen!

It feels like a meaningless ritual. 
Christ is Risen!

It feels too soon. Our worries are great and we’re still sheltering in place.
Christ is Risen!

[A moment of silence.]

And yet…our hope is assured. Life and love have survived the vilest torture and hate. 
Christ is Risen!

Though the struggles of living are real, God’s love overcomes. God’s love has overcome! Christ is Risen!
Christ is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

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.
