Reformation Day

It's Halloween and we're not handing out toothbrushes and sugarless gum.

It's also Reformation day and we are going to a church service instead. What a nice change. In some other years we've been to a "Reformation party", to which Martin and I appeared as the Pope and his housekeeper. (How nasty.)

At this time of worry, I admire the courage and steadfastness of those who stuck their necks out to promote the reformation, foremost Martin Luther, himself. In reading: through the Psalms with Luther, you can get a sense of how he applied the Psalms to his own time, struggles and settings. Lord keep us all and bring us to a good end. May the freedom of the Gospel and the Christian person be spread far and wide.
