I've got so much pride I almost have pride in it. Thanks for this sermon - stuff I needed to hear.

Thank you. This came at a good time for me. I've been chafing at the "what is the problem and what you can do about it" messages.

You are funny and wise. I like it. :)

This is so great--thank you! Lately the Lenten texts have brought to mind the national study on the spirituality of teenagers in the last few years, and the conclusion that "Moralistic Therapeutic Deism" ("the church of benign whateverism") pretty much sums it up. While there are certainly worse things to believe than "God wants you to be nice and behave yourself," I've been pondering how we preach Jesus ("and him crucified") in clear contrast to that. I love the way you do it here; thanks for some inspiration.

Thank you for a very interesting read. I have struggled many times with the idea that "following the rules" is enough, knowing full well that I have fallen short and since I (and everyone else) have, then what? The message of grace seems so often lost. You gave me a lot of food for thought, and I'm glad I discovered your blog.

What a crock! You can't prove any of this!
By 2042, the ELCA will have disappeared. Good riddance to a bunch of idiots!
