Happy Reformation Day!

For Reformation Day, our Care Group passed out fliers around our Church neighborhood to invite people to our Reformation Day weekend.
As you can see, I was "a monk," and Leigh Anne is borrowing (for the picture) the Wittenburg Door that our friend Josh made, which was quite impressive.

What is Reformation Day?

On Oct 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed a list of talking points against the sale of indulgences in the Catholic Church to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church (the 16th century version of a bulletin board/blogspot). This discussion is viewed by many as the beginning of the Reformation, which reclaimed the Biblical notion that Salvation comes by grace through faith, not by works (Eph 2:8-10; Rom 1:16-17).

Reformation Day is a celebration of this time period when the gospel was rediscovered and cherished for the gift that it is.

Other Blogging Haunts:

I also occasionally post annotations that I make as I read Cormac McCarthy at "Reading Cormac McCarthy."
