Authority and Power, Letty M. Russell


Authority is exercised by standing with others by seeking to share power and authority. Power is seen as something to be multiplied and shared rather than accumulated at the top. A leader is one who inspires others to be leaders, especially those on the margins of church and society who do not think they are ‘somebody.’

Letty M. Russell in “Church in the Round”
