it was amazing

This book is going to make a lot of Lutherans uncomfortable. Good! It's time for us to get uncomfortable. It's time for us to answer the call. Duncan holds a mirror to our trauma, our failings, our sins, our beauty, our needs, and our community through this beautifully written piece. Read it! Read it in your church study groups. Read it by yourself. Give a copy to your pastor, your youth leader, and your church president. Cry through the pages (I know I did). Pray through the discomfort and the truth telling. Duncan is a masterful writer and the ELCA is blessed to have his leadership.
