Lutheran Zephyr is Lutheran

I’m Lutheran – no duh.

But in light of my question about what it means to be Lutheran, and the numerous responses to that question (listed in the right-hand column under the picture of my home run swing), I thought I’d reinterate my perspective on what it means to be Lutheran.

Here’s a post I listed back in March, which is really a re-worked version of a September post.  To me, Lutheranism:

  • knows that God comes down the ladder
  • knows that God dwells where we least expect God to dwell
  • takes sin seriously
  • embraces paradox
  • preaches about God (not about us!)
  • embraces the common stuff of everyday life

Check out my earlier post for the gory details . . . And keep submitting your responses!

    In Lutheran terms,
    This is most certainly true 🙂

    Nice! It’d be interesting to see where evangelicals disagree.

    I’m happy to be “Lutheran” based on your list. 🙂
