Luther Sends His Regards

Posted by

Happy Reformation Day everybody.  If Chile can celebrate it than we certainly should too.

 

Here are two quotes to think about as you remember October 31, 1517.  The first is from Luther, the second comes from the Lutheran hymnal/service for Reformation Sunday.  Both have to do with the gospel.

 

Enjoy carving your Martin Luther pumpkin. Be sure to send the photos.

 

"What does amount to that we have the gospel in this little corner?  Just reckon that there is no gospel in all of Africa and Asia and that the gospel isn't preached in many parts of Europe, in Greece, Italy, Hungary, Spain, France, England, Poland."

                       

Almighty God, who through the preaching of thy servants, the blessed reformers, has caused the light of the gospel to shine forth:  Grant, we beseech you, that knowing its saving power, we may faithfully guard and defend it against all enemies, and joyfully proclaim it, to the salvation of souls and the glory of your holy Name, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.  Amen.
