Five Good Things About Being Lutheran

4 Sep

Whether an Active Lutheran or an Ethnic Lutheran, this religion offers more than eternal rewards.

1.) No fasting holidays or rituals.  Many Lutheran are a-okay with having a steak on a Friday during Lent.  (They’d probably prefer you have it with potatoes and something green though, doncha know.)

2.) I wouldn’t want to be prideful or anything, but the music is usually pretty good and we sing in four parts.  It wasn’t until I hit undergrad that I discovered that I only know the harmony to some Christmas carols.

3.) Potlucks.

4.) Confession and penance is a personal discussion between sinner and maker, done silently and en masse.

5.) Tons of bad jokes about Martin Luther and the theses.
