Happy Reformation Day

491 years ago today, Martin Luther took action to begin an in-church debate on 95 points which Luther thought reflected needed areas of reform in the church. Luther nailed a list of these 95 points to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. He did not know at the time that his request to debate points of church reform would lead to the largest reformation movement in church history.

To my Protestant Christian brothers and sisters around the world, I wish you a truly Happy Reformation Day from the School of the Solitary Place.
