A Post Worth Sharing on Ash Wednesday

Here is an interesting Ash Wednesday post we are happy to share.

It asks interesting questions about the corporate need for atonement.

Lutherans are very big on the corporate nature of church, focused mostly on corporate worship. The church is the people, we like to say.

Bodies of people are just as capable of wrong-doing as individuals.

How do we repent for the wrongs we impose on others? How about the wrongs we impose on our own?

Good questions.


The first step might be to admit that churches make mistakes. BIG mistakes, sometimes.

Don’t just read this post. Take some time to answer it—in theory and action!
