Today is Reformation Day!

What, I hear you ask, is Reformation Day? It’s a sad comment on the church in UK that so many even have to ask this question, especially given the fact that so many in our country, even professing Christians, indulge themselves in the pagan practices of Halloween.

But Reformation Day marks, in the words of Stephen Nichols, October 31, 1517, when “A single event on a single day changed the world”.

This was the day when Martin Luther lit the touchpaper that started the blaze that brought about the Reformation, and so Reformation Day celebrates “the joyful beauty of the liberating gospel of Jesus Christ.” I warmly commend Stephen’s article to you.
