THE QUESTION OF AUTHORITY
In the middle of an oral examination in seminary the professor asked, “What’s your authority?” I wanted to say it’s from the gospel according to Phil Sweet but I wanted to pass the exam. I said: “I’ve thought about it. I’ve done a lot of reading. I’ve listened.” It wasn’t an adequate answer. Where is the source of truth in your life?
Phil Sweet is a long-time friend of UUFDC, and a marvelous and insightful story-teller. He served as minister of Hope Church in Sturgeon Bay and two rural churches in western Minnesota.
