Thinking about Authority and Tradition
My wife and I are Church Orphans. We got tired of waiting to be invited to church, so we just crashed the doors and started in. Ever since I entered the clergy, I have taken it upon myself to create the Church wherever I go, in the sense that I make sure that others feel invited. I remember the Church I wanted to belong to and I offer that to others. Waiting to join something as amorphous as “The United Methodist Church” is likely to be a long, frustrating wait. Especially if what you want is the love.Collapse )
