Make Us Like Isaiah

We create images of you,
placing you within the constraints of our humanity.
But you are beyond our imaginings.

You call upon us to be your people,
pushing the limits of who we think we can be.
But you know we can be so much more.

Afraid of what you expect, 
we hold back and hesitate to commit.
Make us enthusiastic and quick to commit like Isaiah when you call. 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.
