As part of my husband’s sermon on Sunday, he encouraged us to celebrate Reformation Day vs. Halloween. In 1517, Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation when he nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of Wittenberg Church, thus making Pope Leo X excommunicate him. This was in order to reform the Roman Catholic church, especially the teaching and sale of indulgences. My children and I recently read “The Monk Who Shook the World,” which is a very reader-friendly version of Martin Luther’s story.
Anyway, the following are pictures of the children dressed up for “Reformation!”
