Pastor Julie’s May Message

Reformation 500

Dear friends,

As the season of Easter continues to embrace us and send us out in mission, Messiah Lutheran Church continues its celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.  The Dream Team has all sorts of plans to help us explore our history and celebrate the future.

The next event will be a study of the 95 Theses or “the Disputation on the Power of Indulgences” that Luther posted the church door in Wittenberg in 1517.  This practice was an invitation to scholarly discussion and debate.  The Disputation, itself, never took place, but this document began to change the church and the world.  This document started the Protestant Reformation and it still informs us five hundred years later.

Please join us on Wednesday, May 3rd, at 7:30pm for study, discussion, and light refreshments.  This study will help us understand our history with the hope of better understanding what we believe today.

I do hope that you are able to attend.

Peace,

Pastor Julie
