#51 In #morningprayer today we read about the #authority of Jesus being challenged #mark11v27toend. Perhaps it is quite apt that #archbishopofcanterbury has today announced that he wants to unite the #anglicancommunion by changing the fabric of what holds us together; rather than a common doctrine, it would move to a relationship of cooperation around matters that we are called to intervene in such as social justice (www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/16/archbishop-of-canterbury-urges-breakup-of-divided-anglican-communion) Perhaps these moves will lead to criticism and his authority being questioned by some, but should they? What is authority and where does it come from? Who do we listen to and allow to influence our decisions? Do we have a right to question the actions and judgement of others?
