Reformation Jostlings - Sightings (Martin Marty)
Monday was Halloween. It also marked the 499th anniversary of the event that launched the Protestant Reformation. Yesterday, I introduced the topic of Reformation and its players, and I expect to occasionally share a few words here about the Reformation and its extension. Today I want to share a post from Martin Marty that he originally posted on Monday. It too focuses on the anniversary, and as a Lutheran, on Luther's role. But he also highlights the diversity within the Lutheran ranks that has developed over time. He also highlights conversations with the Roman Catholic Church that are paving the way for some rapprochement. So, onward toward the 500th Anniversary!!
