Lutherans around the world will take time during their services this weekend to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. According to the History Channel, Martin Luther tacked on the door of a German church his 95 Theses in 1517, attacking the Catholic Church for some of their practices at the time and started Protestant movement. Pastor John Moll of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Algoma says the most important aspect of what Luther brought out was the theology he wanted to bring to all people.
Lutheran churches across Door and Kewaunee County are hosting special events and services to commemorate the 500th anniversary including St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, where they will continue their sermon series on the Reformation and host a special children’s liturgy.
