Get Going

The cries of injustice have reached God’s ears and heart. God says, “I see their oppression and suffering.”

“We see it, too, God,” we respond. “Are you going to rescue them now?”

And god responds, “So get going. I’m sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt.” (Exodus 3:10 CEB)

Who are we to fix injustice or bring your love into the world?

I will help you, says God. I will be at your side but you must go. I have chosen you.

Here we are, Lord. We will go. 

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.
