Dawn Bornemann posted on her Face Book page a link to something on a church website that I wrote a long time ago and tagged me. In the piece, I tell about how I, personally, have benefitted from Lutheranism, which I stumbled across after a long period of church shopping, theological study, and spiritual searching. In doing so, the essay pulls together what it means to be a Lutheran and what Lutheranism means, particularly in the context of the rest of Christianity and everything else that is out there.
For the life of me, I couldn’t remember when I wrote this and where it first appeared. Google didn’t help with that, for some reason, though it linked to some other churches that also have this on their website. I suspect it came out in the aftermath of my book Spirituality of the Cross, which goes into more detail about all of this.
