Me as Luther, CSP library 2011

Me as Luther, CSP library 2011

I think this blog’s first post should tell you everything you need to know about what it is all about… (update, years later: clearly, not every post on this blog deals with issues like this anymore…). My name is Nathan Rinne and I am a Lutheran layman (with a theology degree) from near Minneapolis, MN. I am a happily married father of five (all boys). I currently work full-time as a librarian at Concordia St. Paul (see here for more of my thoughts on libraries from a Christian perspective). I also regularly teach introductory theology classes on an adjunct basis for the university. Here on my blog, I speak only for myself.

That goes for guest posts as well. On occasion, I will ask someone for permission to reprint an article here. Even that, however, does not mean I fully endorse their position. In addition, there are also a number of people I have invited to post things here whenever they like: Matthew Garnett, Jon Alan Schmidt, Pastor Del Campbell, Keith Horrigan, Lance Brown, etc. I basically will publish whatever they give me.

Below is the spot reserved for the bios of these folks, if they chose to contribute something:

Mr. Brown: Mr Brown has lots of opinions. He is a terrible Lutheran. And to his credit, it has been suggested that he does indeed possess some degree of self-awareness regarding how corny he is.

If you would like to contribute a submission, please email me at NRinneatgmaildotcom. Submissions can deal with matters that are cultural and political, but should always be grounded in and point towards sound theology, particularly the Gospel of Jesus Christ narrowly understood (forgiveness, life, and salvation in Him from sin, death, the devil, the world, etc).

    Hi Nate,
    Todd and I are vacationing with the kids Aug 6-10 in Minneapolis. We are hoping we could meet up with you, Sheila, and the kids since we haven’t seen you since our St.Catharines days. I don’t have your email, but if you could contact us, that would be great.

    I sent Todd an email. Funny – I didn’t even realize people could comment on this page… : )

    Anyways, this is *good* news! Already left a message for Sheila at home…

    Hey Nathan. This is Robin Cranford. You gave me your email so I could ask a few questions but I lost it in the twitter feed. You have my email now I believe. Could you shoot me yours?
