In 1517, on October 31, Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church. This marks the 500th Anniversary of that momentous event. Although Luther and no one else, realized it at the moment, it was a day that changed the world. We need to celebrate that! Our bulletin will have something written by Luther or written by someone else about him. We need to know who this man was and we need to know again why we are Lutherans!
