Happy Reformation Day!

Friends,

October 31, 1517 is the best-known date in Protestant history. At high noon on October 31, 1517, Luther, a 33-year-old university professor, walked to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, and tacked to it a document. The door served as the town bulletin board, and Martin Luther had an announcement to post. He called for a disputation on the power and efficacy of indulgences.

A few curious passersby drew near and scanned the words: Out of love for the faith and the desire to bring it to light, the following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg under the chairmanship of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and Sacred Theology. There followed a list of 95 items. Luther did not yet know what mighty blows he had struck. Morgan, R. J. (c1997).

Have a good day!
