An epiphany during Epiphany

As one who has already completed EFM and is acting as a backup mentor while restudying Year 1 & 2, I was asked to lead Year 4 Lesson 19 tonight. In preparation, while going over the material last evening (Wm. Temple and the Niebuhrs), a thought seemed to jump up and slap me in the face:

“I am a disciple/follower of the Christ as I know Him, rather than any understanding espoused or proffered by any theologian, spiritual leader, or other mentor. While “greater minds” can provide some level of knowledge and direction regarding God and His message; by virtue of “free will”, it is incumbent upon me to know and recognize Him where and how He offers and presents Himself to me.”
