A Man Named Martin: The Moment behind the Reformation

Man Named Martin—Part 2: The Moment examines the errant teachings and wayward traditions of the Late Medieval Church that eventually sparked the Protestant Reformation, a theological overhaul set in motion most notably by Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg.

This three-part Bible study takes a close look at the widespread teachings of the late Medieval Church that were superfluous to the Bible or not scripturally grounded. Among them were purgatory, penance, celibacy, prayers for the dead, transubstantiation, the treasury of merits of Christ, devotion to Mary and the rosary, the institution of the papacy, and the one most often linked to the Reformation: the sale of indulgences.

Christians in Community:
We Are Not Alone

Have you heard anyone say, "I'm a spiritual person, but I'm not religious"?  Maybe you've said it yourself.  Today, many people feel that no organized religion empowers them to be healthy, renewed, or growing Christians.  To them, rituals and organizations found in churches are mere empty shells.
 
Jesus says: "I came that they may have life and have it to the full" (John 10:10).  This study will share the Lutheran conviction that we do have abundant life given in the Church.  Lutherans confess that the Church is the assembly of all believers "in which the Gospel is purely taught and the Sacraments are correctly administered."  It answers the questions: "Where is the Church?" and "Where can I find a church home?"  Lutherans confess that a true Church is not measured by "my taste" or "my sincerest spirituality"; rather, the Church is where our crucified and risen Lord Jesus lives and gives His abundant gifts.
 
Jesus invites you come to His Church.  Discover the richness and joy that is found in the Lord's Church alone and the life that is lived there together as Christians in Community.

Ecclesiastes: A Word for Today 
Ecclesiastes: A Word for Today challenges us to see ourselves written across its pages.  It challenges us to identify the frustrations and the struggles of this book as our own.  It challenges us to discern the preaching of our culture and society today and to be able to resist the bad and help the good.  It challenges us to understand better the struggle of the flesh and the spirit.  
 
Above all, it challenges us to see the hand of God in all of life, giving meaning to life.  It challenges us to rediscover and reaffirm the purpose of life as it is revealed in Jesus Christ and His offer of forgiveness of sins. Truly, Ecclesiastes is a Word for Today.
