Before Passing a Budget: A Prayer

Holy One,

We gather this morning as your people — as church. We are here to elect leaders and approve a budget for the coming year. We are here to learn about the program cabinet and our role within the Disciples of Christ denomination. Open our hearts and minds to your ways that we are mindful of one another and your teachings. Focus us on your expectations to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly in your presence. Hold us. Nudge us. Remind us. We are yours and we are called to follow the teachings of the one in whom we pray, Jesus the Christ. Amen. 

Tim is a former early childhood educator, a runner, a hiker, a devoted husband, father of two adult children, their spouses, and a grandfather of four perfect children. Tim is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Tim 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.
