500th Reformation Celebration at ECLC

Nearly 500 years ago Martin Luther used one poster, a hammer & nails, to proclaim God’s love for us. Let’s celebrate together on this very special Anniversary.

Sunday Forums
The Forgotten Luther: Reclaiming the Social-Economic Dimension of the Reformation will be discussed in our Sunday Forums:

  • October 8th     Chapter 3: “The Subversive Luther”
  • October 15th   Chapter 2: “Greed Is an Unbelievable Scoundrel”
  • October 22nd Chapter 4: “An Economic Reading of Luther’s Catechisms in Long Context”

On Reformation Sunday, October 29th, Melissa Bergstrom and the ECLC Choir will be singing during worship and leading the Sunday Forum. Plus the Reformation Sunday Fun Day for All Ages! Everyone is invited to participate in a variety of hands-on learning activities in the Fellowship Hall at 9:45. (Sign up as a volunteer if you can help).

Friday, November 3rd, join Reformation enthusiasts at Orchestra Hall for “Reformation Symphony: Celebrating 500 Years of Reformation through Music” with the Orchestra and Chorale, Osmo Vänskä conducting. Tickets are $25; sign-up and handout with info/parking at Sign-Up Center.

Sunday, November 29th The Sunday Forum will view a PBS: Secrets of the Dead video about Michelangelo’s life. We’ll learn about a mystery that reveals how close the Roman Catholic Church came to adopting Martin Luther’s reforms—by one vote! Would we be celebrating today if the vote went the other way?
