Appreciating the Past …

Yesterday, October 31, was a holiday. Few celebrated it or even remembered it.

Nearly 500 years ago an unknown monk nailed a paper onto the church’s door in Wittenberg, Germany. It caused a big stink. The paper had 95 points with three major themes. If you look it up it’s called: “95 Theses” and the conflict it set in motion is still going on. http://www.uncommon-travel-germany.com/95-theses.html

There is a hymn that identifies with this action by the Catholic monk. The hymn is “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” (http://schaefer-family.com/hymns.htm). Martin Luther wrote this hymn, based on Psalm 46, after he had nailed the 95 Theses to the Wittenberg church door.

Regardless what anyone thinks about the Reformation it accomplished at least one positive thing for everyone. It made God personal again. That’s worth celebrating.
