Ours is a faith

Ours is a faith focused on love.
The one we call God is
the very definition of love.

Ours is a faith of spiritual growth.
The one we call God is
an ever-creating, ever-evolving breath of love. 

Ours is a faith of action. 
The one we call God provokes us to
speak, demand, & create justice for all peoples especially the poor, oppressed, & marginalized.

We are the imperfect who gather to learn and grow into a people more in-tune with the one we call God.
We gather to love, grow, & act. 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.
