|Location||A Lutheran Pastor, Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia|
|Introduction||I am Mark Henderson (aka 'acroamaticus' when I was writing this blog incognito). I was christened (baptised) in the Church of England but joined the Lutheran Church by profession of faith (16 years ago), after discovering that all that is best in the Anglican 39 Articles of Religion finds fuller and clearer expression in the Augsburg Confession. I'm still fond of the Anglican Church, but often perplexed by it; I guess you could say I'm 'Anglo-Lutheran'. I graduated from Luther Seminary in 2002 with a B.Th. (Hons) & Grad. Dip. Min. I am a called and ordained minister serving a parish of the Lutheran Church of Australia. 'Glosses From An Old Manse', is a play on the title of the collection of short stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne, 'Mosses from an Old Manse'. 'Glosses' are the interpretive notes you find scribbled on the margins of texts. Since blogging is not really a medium suited to the extended treatment of theology, the idea of these blog posts as mere glosses written on the margins of theology and life from the study of a virtual 'old manse' seems appropriate.|
