No Pietists Allowed parties

One of the many joys of the Steadfast Conference is the times to get together in the evenings. The No Pietists Allowed parties are joyous occasions to get to know one another better, to meet up with friends, or just to enjoy some good beverages and food. This year we will have four different houses hosting parties on both Thursday and Friday nights. All the houses are within a 15 to 20 minute drive of Zion Lutheran Church. So, if you need another reason to come to the Conference, besides the great speakers and faithful worship, I encourage you to come and have some good beer so you can sin a little less. Come down to Texas ya’ll and have a good time.

  1. I get the point, but I don’t appreciate the title, as I’ve written on this site in the distant past.

    Not only would I not be allowed (though I do drink beer if there isn’t wine available), but you would also have to bar Bo Giertz and almost every decent Scandinavian pastor and theologian of the past two centuries.

    So call it a sense-of-humour-failure if you like, but how about a new title for next year which actually describes what you’re trying to describe without the risk of offending fellow travellers?

    I’m not sure I appreciate the point, since BJS is inviting people who [have a problem with/are medically advised against] alcohol to stay away, effectively.
    Luther may have drunk beer regularly… the water was bad… but you shouldn’t be frozen out of 21st century Lutheran ‘clubs’ that you are otherwise “in tune with” if you don’t/can’t immerse yourself in alcohol.
    It’s a wonder more pastors aren’t alcoholics; there’s so much pressure toward it.

    But I suspect my Grandparents were Pietists! I’m a Dane!
