Authority is grounded in truth-telling—in naming what is even when it hurts, even when it unsettles and storms, even when it seems to raise the temperature before it lowers it.
And yet, this: the truth will set you free. A True word, a divine Word does not need a temple or an army. It sings even in a foreign land. It is an antidote for hopelessness, for despair, for a people unmoored from faith and nation.
A true word takes courage not to just hear, but to listen, not just to acknowledge, but to obey. These acts form and recreate the beloved community. They heal us of our dis-ease. They inspire and raise up newness. Courage breeds courage. Faith breeds faith. Love breeds belonging and peace.
