Hey Cranky Lutheran gal,
I'm really attracted to most of what's on your website. I'm a Christian, but not Lutheran, and I appreciate the beauty of the things you talk about. I've spent time with Lutheran churches and am sad that "non-denominational" churches tend to have rather bland traditions and lack the sense of history, monasticism, and other things. Still, the part of your website that deals with your visit to Scum of the Earth church is appalling. The fact that you would bash them and make such denigrating statements does not make you look fit for ministry, or like anything other than a total bitch. As long as you leave that up, there is no way I would ever want to be associated with you and I would question your maturity, or even your belief as a Christian. Have you simply forgotten about this part of the site? You have spawned so much negativity and superiority in a way that is not, in my opinion, appropriate in Christianity. Do you worship God and want people to connect to him, or do you worship the Lutheran church?

Kevin,
You are correct in saying that my Scum of the Earth posting was bitchy. I fully admit that but I try and not appear as someone who I'm not. What I write here is an authentic representation of me and my personality flaws and all. It has been my experience in the church that the church doesn't actually benefit from its leaders cultivating "nice, clean cut, i have climbed the spiritual ladder and am totally sanctified so you should trust and follow me" images. We all struggle. I don't want to ever portray myself as anything other than I am.

The epilogue of my book is about the friendship I have with one of the SOTC pastors and how he wanted to be my friend even though I wrote such a bitchy post about his church. This wasan act of grace indeed.

I would like to have attended an event like this.
