Start Here

Getting Started at The Fire Escape

Welcome everyone! We are two Lutheran Seminarians, hoping to be pastors soon, that enjoy talking and thinking about God. The word “theology” can be scary and can conjure images of dudes with big white beards using complicated words. We want to make theology clear, applicable, and even fun. We hope you enjoy yourselves, and thanks for spending your time here!

– Mike and Dave

Getting Started With Theology

Quite literally, theology means “God talk.” We are going to talk about God an awful lot here, but that doesn’t mean that we are just going to ramble. Theology also means talking and thinking about God in a clear way. That can be a difficult thing if you are new to theology. If you don’t know where to begin then we recommend that you start with this article that we wrote: Theology 101: How to Begin to Be a Theologian. Remember, theology is also a journey, so we hope that you accompany us.
