Happy Reformation Day!
This is a day of celebration! I doubt you will see any children walking around this evening dressed like Martin Luther but it is a significant day in church history. October 31 is Reformation Day. This is the day celebrated as the day that Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Wittenberg church door in 1517. The reformers believed that only Scripture was the authority for Christians, not traditions of a church and they preached salvation by grace and not works. We celebrate those who courageously stood against the theological norms of the time, confronting corruption in the church at the price of risking and/or losing their lives. Happy Reformation Day!
