Grow & Follow, Follow & Grow

Jesus was actively engaged in Temple life. He asked questions, challenging ideas, and listened to the rabbis.
He wanted to learn and grow.

Faith is about questions and doubts. It is about listening to those who have studied and experienced beyond our circle.
Even in his tweens, Jesus understood this.

Open your hearts and minds to God. Accept that our growth and learning require discomfort. Be willing to let go of and add-on to the way you thought it was.
God beckons us along a new path. Let us grow and follow, follow, and grow. 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.
