Change the World: One Life at a Time

November 5, 2017

When Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg on October 31, 1517 it began a new season in the life of the church. On Sunday, churches around Raleigh are planning a mass event on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation to demonstrate how individual lives are still being touched by the Reformation’s heritage. The Reformation empowered people to see that their roles as parents, artists, musicians and laborers all had great value in the world. Living together and walking as one people are important hallmarks of the Reformation. Raleigh is being invited to a free afternoon to see how the Reformation continues to touch lives today. There will be a worship service at 12:30pm followed by an afternoon music festival, art show, lectures from international speaker Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz, emeritus Lutheran Hour Speaker, and a free health clinic. Congregations throughout Raleigh and as far away as Charlotte are prepared to welcome the city of Raleigh to see how the Protestant Reformation continues to change the world one life at a time 500 years after the 95 Theses were first posted.
