500 Years Since The Dawn of the Reformation

September 18, 2017

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther placed 95 theses or propositions questioning the Church’s use of indulgences on the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany. That act is considered the “flash point” for the Protestant Reformation.

Three events below provide Christians an opportunity to pray for each other, to heal old wounds, and to continue along the path of encounter and dialogue.
