Interfaith Days: Reformation Sunday
Window at Eden Seminary
In many Protestant Christian churches, today is celebrated as Reformation Sunday. By tradition, on October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed to the door of Wittenberg Church a statement of 95 theses (propositions to debate) concerning papal authority and church teaching. He did not intend to break with the Roman Catholic Church, only to debate and clarify aspects of the Gospel. The statement led eventually to the Protestant Reformation. I wrote more about the day and about Luther here.
