We haven't quite pulled up all the tent stakes yet on the inaugural Walking the Midway Lutheran carnival, themed around Lutheran spirituality.
Clint at Lutheran Confessions has just posted a very good essay on Lutheran baptismal spirituality -- check it out.
As for my contribution...well, obviosuly intervening events have made it hard to focus on writing a coherent essay on anything, but perhaps one of these days I'll post something. It's going to be on spiritual practice, and why I think we Lutherans drop the ball by not giving our people tried-and-true tools that can help them live into their baptismal promise; that can support their daily faith walk. This is a subject I've become quite passionate about as I have discovered the value of spiritual practices like daily fixed prayer and Ignatian spiritual exercises, but when I tried to write something off the cuff about it tonight it read like gibberish to me, so I'll wait for awhile. But in the meantime discuss amongst yourselves.
