Advent 3 - Year B
John 1:6-8, 19-28
If the criterion is being a witness able to testify to what you have experienced as a source of meaning, anyone and everyone can be identified as sent by G*D. The worth and dignity of every person grows from this seed of integrity between the courage to trust experience and the strength to share this truth in the midst of other truths.
This is a measure of one’s own way in the world, not another’s. When we remember and participate in our journey, there is not a need to judge another in relation to our journey, but for an encouragement of them to engage their own journey. What is a next step for one is not a universal.
A further measure of our way in the world is the clarity between what our experience is and what we make of it (our belief).
So, who are you? You can’t be measured against any other model. You can be measured against what you hear - “Make a better way.”
