Dh and I find ourselves suddenly in a very awkward position in our church. It's a place that I am completely unprepared to be. I feel like I have no authority to stand on, but I know that's just because I am used to man's idea of authority. I grew up thinking that authority was only held by those elected to power, by people who have titles or specialized degrees, by the older and wiser, or by those whose experiences are so long-standing, thorough or extraordinary as to bestow upon them the term "expert." Dh and I have a suitcase full of that kind of authority ... but it's all useless when applied to theology. In the end, truth is truth. And the truth will triumph, if we stand tall and proclaim it.
So why do I feel so alone?
