It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

By Whose Authority? a Reflection on Acts 4:5-12

Peter, a religious man, has been acting on his religious training and experience, is now called to account by religious authorities.

"Who gave you the authority to do this?"

Holly Hearon  asks:
When have you experienced a life-giving event in your life that has been viewed with suspicion by others? When have you found yourself suspicious of what someone else has identified as a life-giving event? What criteria should be used in assessing such moments?

I have often found myself challenging or questioning such things in others when it challenges what I consider "normal" or "reasonable". This is more an indictment on me I think.
