500 YEARS AGO

 

... on October 31, 1517, Martin Luther sparked the Reformation when he challenged the papacy and the Roman Catholic Church for selling indulgences for the forgiveness of sins and boldly proclaimed that salvation is not found in works but in Christ Jesus through GRACE alone, by FAITH alone, according to SCRIPTURE alone.  Luther preached the importance of education for ALL people, not just elite males.  He pressed for the opening of new schools, recommended monasteries be turned into schools, and sought to ensure that every parish had its own school.  The Reformation continues to have far-reaching effects touching everything from our Constitution, to biblical literacy, to education for all people, to the origin and mission of our Lutheran School system.  As a result, this historic 500th anniversary presents a powerful opportunity for our Lutheran schools to individually and collectively reflect on the courage of Martin Luther and give thanks for the opportunity to proclaim God’s truth and share His love for all people.  One way we are celebrating this year is by sharing the gospel message of Jesus Christ with a simple gift through Operation Christmas Child.
