Pastor’s Letter October 2017
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Grace to you and peace from our Lord, Jesus Christ! And peace we have with God through Christ!
This October 31st marks 500 years since the start of the Reformation with Lutherans nailing the 95 Theses to a church door in tiny Wittenberg, Germany. They were simply to debate what Luther, a professor and Pastor of Theology, to reform the church in the beginning. Luther never wanted to leave the church, he simply wanted to reform it - especially the sale of indulgences (spiritual coupons for payment of sins). This was to raise funds to build a new church in Rome - St. Peter’s. There, of course, were other abuses Luther wanted to reform, especially in northern Europe, and they still do today. We have come along way. I would suggest viewing the PBS documentary on Martin Luther and the Idea that Changed the World, channel 13 or 21. It’s 2 hours, but, well worth the view and review.
