Reformation 500

reformation500-02

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the events, doctrinal disputations, and movements that birthed what we know as the Protestant Reformation. Sparked in 1517 by the activities and writings of Martin Luther in Wittenburg, Germany the phenomenon that ensued forever changed the global Christian church as well as leaving an indelible mark on Western culture as a whole. As heirs of the Reformation, we are reflecting on this 500th anniversary with three scheduled events that focus our attention on the dynamics that went into shaping this important historical and theological reality.
