Caesar’s Stuff

Tax – how I hate it.  Don’t like paying it – but much more don’t like sorting it out.  Caesar is welcome to it, so far as I am concerned.

Interesting how a week sort of takes a theme to itself.  My own agenda, of course, but it’s interesting how it is spoken by a range of people …  It often comes down to what is really the craft of priesthood.  That always sounds a bit unworthy [crafty?] but it isn’t meant to.  It’s about exercising authority in obedience and taking leadership in a way which facilitates the leadership of others and setting boundaries and dealing with those who cross them.  There is something of the entrepreneur in it – with a certain amount of assertiveness.  The only absolutes are the presence of love and the absence of fear.

    It’s the second meeting they have in the car park afterwards that you need to watch! It comes in the ‘Just because you’re paranoid’ department ….
