Q & A

There's a joke about seminary - instead of it being the place where your questions get answered, it is the place where your answers get questioned.

I've been blessed with some amazing supervisors and professors who have challenged all of my answers. And they continue to do so. At times it feels unnerving to be constantly re-questioning and at other times, I feel this is our very calling. We cannot approach ministry or Christianity believing we have all the answers or the right answers. Faith is a dialogue with God and all creation.

furthermore, since we are Lutherans, we are called to be continually reforming the church. We are called to continually be stretching ourselves to live out the gospel and find new ways to proclaim the good news.We are called to question our answers.

So welcome to life as a Lutheran - constantly questioning answers.
