Sustains & Undergirds

Like the sun that warms,
and energizes our planet…
Like the water that refreshes,
and teems with your creation…
And like the soil and love from,
which we are made…
Your presence sustains and
undergirds all that is.

Be with us,
circle and flow between
our homes reminding us
that we are one people.

Move our hearts.
Mover our hands and feet.
Move us to passionately risk,
to be the people needed,
in this time,
in this place,
And by you.

We enter into worship,
because we are yours.


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.
