Four hundred and ninety-three years ago this coming Sunday (October 31), Martin Luther nailed his famous Ninety-Five Theses to the church door of the castle church in Wittenberg. Through that formerly unknown Augustinian monk who was serving as a professor of theology in a theretofore unimportant university, the Lord God literally transformed all of Western Civilization and indeed the world. We stand as heirs and beneficiaries of God’s gracious work through Martin Luther and the other reformers who would soon follow him. Thus, the Chrisman family celebrates Reformation Day.
In addition, this Reformation Day we will have something else very important to celebrate — the baptisms of our children! (We will also be celebrating our joining with Providence Church in membership.)
Any of our friends and family who can make it are more than welcome to attend. It will be at Providence Church, with worship beginning at 9:00 a.m. A Reformation Day and Baptism celebration will follow the services.
