Reformation 500 Anniversary Resources (by Augsburg Fortress)
October 31, 2017, will mark 500 years since the beginning of the Lutheran Reformation, spurred by Martin Luther’s posting of the Ninety-Five Theses. This is an important anniversary and one that deserves to be lifted up not just on a global scale—as it will be—but in your congregation and community as well.
Through several avenues, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and Augsburg Fortress will be highlighting a wide range of ideas and possibilities from various sources with ways to mark and observe this milestone.
Save the Date
King of Glory, Dallas, will host the opening worship service for the American Guild of Organists Southwest Regional Convention, Monday, June 12, at 8:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. Patterned after Lutheran Vespers worship from the 16th and 17th centuries, the service commemorates the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. A professional choir and chamber orchestra will present larger musical elements of the liturgy, alongside congregation hymns supported by the King of Glory Sanctuary Choir and organist Michael Shake. Bishop Erik Gronberg is presiding. Though the service is part of the Convention, it is open to all (seating on a first come basis). For more information, contact Michael Shake: email@example.com.
