Remembering the Reformation!

2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. We mark this date from October 31, 1517 when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church. Pastor Hoyer has written 95 thoughts that can be used in your daily devotions based on each of the 95 Theses. They can be downloaded at lutherdevotions.com.
