Living Water Lutheran Church, 83 Bluff Point Road, Kilmarnock, will hold a Celebration Sunday meal after the 10 a.m. service Sunday, October 29.
This day is a very special day in Lutheran history, it is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, reported Claudia Holmes.
The congregation invites the community to spend a few extra minutes in church on Sunday and enjoy food, fellowship and a video on the Lutheran heritage.
To make this a special day, while enjoying the meal, watch a video by Rick Steves, titled “Luther and the Reformation.” Bring a dish to share.
Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther started the Protestant Reformation. In the one-hour video, filmed in Europe, Steves tells the story of a humble monk who lived a dramatic life, said Holmes.
He visits key sites relating to the Reformation including Erfurt, Wittenberg and Rome, and explores the complicated political world of 16th-century Europe—from the printing press to the Counter-Reformation. It’s a story of power, rebellion and faith, she said.
