For it is by grace you have been saved...

Happy Reformation Day! (reprint from last year)

It's my understanding that there are a few pagans out there who mark this date with some other bizarre set of rituals, but for those of us who know better, today is Reformation Day.

That's right, today marks the anniversary of that day in 1517 when one brave little monk rose up against the tyranny of the Roman Church, nailing his "95 Theses" on the church door in Wittenburg, Germany. He took a stand for the principles of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone. And the rest, as they say, is history.

This is a great time to get the family together, play some Bible based games (or the ever popular "Pin the 95 Theses on the Wittenberg Door"), talk a bit about Church History and the courage of men like Luther, Calvin, etc. And you can top off the evening by watching the Luther movie which came out a few years back.

For your Reformation Day enjoyment, here are some clips from the movie along with some Christian music to boot . If you haven't seen the movie, watch this clip and then run out and buy the whole thing! Semper Reformanda!

We will "roast the papal bull tonight" (Tri-tips) and watch the movie Martin Luther
