Happy Reformation Day!

While everyone is running around, and for good fun, filling bags of candy today, I'm thinking on this All Hallow's Eve of one particular saint worth remembering. Especially today.

499 years ago today, Martin Luther tacked up the Wittenberg Door an invitation to discuss 95 theses concerning the sale of indulgences. Next year is gonna be a yuge year for publishing, celebrating, and discussing the Protestant Reformation, but it is worth stopping every year to think on the meaning of indulgences other than a KitKat bar.

In that vein, here are a few helpful resources I've found of late to help me, as a Protestant, think about the Reformation.

"When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, ``Repent'' (Mt 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance." - Martin Luther, Thesis 1

Semper Reformanda.
