He likes me! He really likes me!

I discovered at Lutheran Seminary Life that Brian McLaren posted the open letter I sent him back in April on his A New Kind of Christian web site.

If you're read the "dialogue" section on his site, you know he doesn't post anything without adding an encouraging response. Even so, I was pleased (read: "my ego was gratified") to see this response:
Thanks! I appreciate everything you said here, and I would like to officially dub your posting an online appendix to A Generous Orthodoxy. Thank God for Lutherans! I especially appreciate your expansion on my brief comment in the book about “the Word of God.” Beautifully said – as only a Lutheran could.

A new Lutheran reformation is happening!
I really liked the letter.

Congratulations! I missed your letter the first time around, so I'm grateful to have had another chance to read it. It's a great piece, and I have more to say about it at my site. I especially liked your paragraph on the Calvinist "blind spot" - very true.

Whoo-hoo, Mel! :-)

I guess you have officially become, as my pastor likes to put it, a missionary to the Christians!
