    • Amen. I’ve only known about Reformation Day for a year or two. It’s a good time not only to celebrate Protestantism, but to soberly think about the terrible price that was paid for the religious freedom in some parts of the world. Luther had no idea his Ninety-Five Theses a paper written as points of debate, would spark a Reformation of the Catholic Church. What followed is mind boggling. Today we can read about the persecution of Protestants during the Reformation in John Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. Mary I of England earned the nickname “Bloody Mary” for her persecution of Protestants. Despite the strong opposition, here we are today by the grace and mercy of God. It is difficult to imagine the Pilgrims or Puritans coming to America, had Luther not posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the Church door at Wittenberg. The providential hand of God is ever present throughout all the ages. We have much to be thankful for.
