You’re Lutheran: What Does This Mean?

Help me answer this question, folks: What does it mean to be Lutheran?  I imagine that if you get five Lutherans in a room, you’ll get six answers . . . regardless, I think it is a question worth asking as our church struggles with its identity in the early 21st century.

Discuss your take on Lutheranism on your blog, send me the link to your post via email @, and I’ll collect and post all the links here at The Lutheran Zephyr.  If you don’t have a blog but want to contribute to the cause, email your thoughts to me or get a blog (for free or for small change).

This question will sit for a few weeks in the new The Question box in the right-side column.  Responses will appear in a blogpost and also listed in the Your Answers box, on the right.  Thank you for reading.  But most importantly, thank you (in advance) for writing.
