“Fiction in Authority”

Luke 4:31-37  “He taught them. and spoke with authority.”  Seventeen years ago when I first began Temenos I was told by a person, “You are working with out credentials”–“authority” from anyone.  To her there was something wrong with working on your own. Well seventeen years later I am still working, but I do have credentials–ordination, the episcopacy, the non-profit, but most of all the credibility of the work.  Authority comes from the way we live our lives, move and have our being–it comes from within ourselves–not from some other person. That is the authority that Jesus has.
