This bulletin means the world to me. #AshWednesday #HongKong
For a wide range of reasons, I don't tweet a lot about the actual work Ruth and I spend a lot of our day doing here in Hong Kong. But I want to make an exception to talk for a second about Ash Wednesday, Lutheranism, and mission.
SO, tagging in @MZHemingway @revcjackson @HansFiene @esgetology @Heminator @hipsterlutheran @lutheranpastors @LCRLFreedom @Lex_Lutheran @tapanisimojoki @thelcms and I'm SURE I'm forgetting a bunch of my other #Lutheran followers/friends, but alas such is life.

1. I appreciate being discussed in this @lgbtqnation piece on people leaving evangelicalism. I wish the author had reached out to me for an interview, though, because the piece represents me and the #Exvangelical community with misleading language.…
2. John Gallagher's piece strongly implies that all exvies remain believers. "As it turns out, some believers–especially young believers–want to go to church to worship God, not Trump."

This is true of some of us. Some of us are done with church and belief in god altogether.
3. It's actually sort of a running "joke" among exvies that while we don't know which group is more dominant, atheists/agnostics or those in the #StillChristian crowd, whichever group you're in, you think the other one is predominant. A weird quirk of confirmation bias, it seems.

Today is #AshWednesday, start of Lent - Catholicism's holy period. Exactly 20 yrs ago I went to church with my Dad, beginning Lent on a somber note. Our priest died the Sunday before, as he prepared the chapel for Mass. I was 9 years old, and the only one there when it happened.
Fr Frank was a dear family friend. The chapel was walking distance from our house. We had him over to dinner, we often visited whilst walking by.

It occurred to me one day to ask who set out the missals on the chairs before mass.
When he explained he prepared stuff for Mass himself, I said I would come to Mass early next week to help him with the books. So I did.

Fr Frank showed me what to do and we chatted for a bit once chores were done. He was looking out of the window quietly, then suddenly collapsed
