This coming Sunday, we celebrate Reformation Sunday – commemorating the day that Martin
Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the doors of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, inviting discussion of the issue of indulgences. As we know now, this led to the Protestant Reformation and was the
beginning of the Lutheran church. We are reminded that it was founded to be ever-reforming,
changing to meet the needs of the communities in which it found itself, always striving to
better proclaim and exemplify the Word of God. We are reminded that faith is not a static
thing that reaches some point at which growth is no longer necessary, but that faith continues
to grow and mature throughout our lifetimes.
In keeping with the Reformation theme, we will be playing Reformation Jeopardy during the
education hour. Brush up on your Reformation history and come prepared for some fun! Who
knows, there might even be prizes (if I get around to thinking about some).
We will continue the celebration after worship with a potluck lunch. Show off your culinary
skills and bring your favorite dish(es) to share will the rest of us!
It will be a celebratory day. Remember to wear RED!
