Truth in a Time of Mistrust and Mythology

The journey continues. 

We continue putting one step in front of the other. 

Our mind wanders.

Our thoughts drifts as we seek to make sense of a world of conflict and mistrust.

We put one foot in front of the other. 

Stumbling over a changed path, we remember what WAS and what WILL-BE.

As we journey, we seek the truth in a world of mythology and mistrust. 

We cower when we see unknown travelers on the horizon.

Jesus answered, “…I was born and came into the world for this reason: to testify to the truth. Whoever accepts the truth listens to my voice.” (John 18:37b CEB)

With each step we consider the truth of the teachings of Jesus.

Take a deep breath, close your eyes.

Do you not perceive it?

[moment of silence]

The Spirit is with us in the NOW.

She dances before us luring us to the WILL-BE.

Rooted in the Spirit, we are open to new paths. 

Our pilgrimage continues.


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.
