Today is the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation! It began on October 31, 1517, when Martin Luther started calling the church to return to these teachings of the Scriptures:
- God’s law: Since we are all condemned for breaking his commandments, our only hope is for God to forgive us.
- God’s gospel: He purchased that pardon with the death of his Son, Jesus Christ, for all our sins.
Celebrating in Ottawa at 3:30 pm on Sunday, November 5:
