Welcome to Words of Faith, written by Rev. Tim Darmour-Paul, pastor of Faith United Church of Christ, Davenport, Iowa, USA.

As I begin creating this blog, I envision writing three different types of articles.

“Faith Matters” will be articles that are concerned with the service of worship.  Sometimes I may write about the scriptures that I am studying for preaching in the upcoming week.  Other times I may have some comments pertaining to the season of the church year.  Occasionally I may write about something that is particularly happening in worship at Faith UCC.  Worship is central to our identity as people of the Christian faith and as people of Faith UCC!

“Faith Works” will be articles that concern upcoming events and activities in the life of our congregation or in our community.  The Christian faith is never simply a matter of what we believe in our heads; it is very much concerned with shaping our lives to reflect the trust we have.

“Faith Seeking Understanding” writings will reflect my thinking about articles or books I am reading, or about conversations I have had, or about issues and topics of current interest.  Faith does not pretend to have all the answers, but seeks to explore in different directions in order to encounter the promised new life.

This is my plan as I begin.  Of course God’s plans for this space may be different than mine, and that’s OK!
