An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Sunday, repeating until October 29, 2017
October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther “nailed” 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. Luther’s protest launched a massive upheaval of Christian church tradition, authority and practice. Emerging from Luther’s protest were several priorities that emerged as hallmarks of Reformation (Reformed) theology. Among these were the authority of Scripture alone as revealed word of God for the church; the primacy of Jesus as Lord of Creation, Incarnation of God and Redeemer of Humanity; the singular pathway of faith as means of fullest access to Christ’s redeeming love, and the response of obedience and service of each believer as members of Christ’s body and priests (no special mediator is necessary between Jesus and the Christian).
During the month of October, Colonial Church will explore these four tenets of Reformation thought, in both their historical and contemporary contexts, with a view toward ReForming our own theological convictions and commitments to Jesus as Lord of our lives, our church and our world.
