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
