Celebrate Reformation Day

As you celebrate (or don't celebrate) Halloween, remember that October 31st is also Reformation Day!

We celebrate today the day Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of his church in Wittenburg, where he was the Theology professor in the university, inviting debate on grace and faith against the Pope's indulgences. Here's a picture of the Wittenburg Castle Church where Martin Luther posted the Ninety-Five theses along with a link to the complete text of this important Theological and historical document.

Luther's first theses was "When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said “Repent,” he intended that the entire life of believers should be repentance." A good point to remember toady, or any day.

Update: Also a great day to pray for revival!
