Still Shifting After 500 Years – The Reformation for Today
It’s not every day that we get to celebrate a shift as BIG as that of the Reformation of the Sixteenth Century. But this year our Conference joins the rest of the Western world to recognize Martin Luther’s hammering start of the Protestant movement five hundred years ago.
On Saturday, October 28, at the Trost Center in DeForest, the historical committee of our Conference will sponsor two presentations from noted Reformation scholars, have lunch together, and hear from our own Wisconsin pilgrims who will have recently returned from Luther’s Germany. Margaret Bendroth of the Congregational Library in Boston, and Lee Palmer Wandel of UW’s history department will help us focus on the contemporary relevance of this half a millennium old shift that some have regarded as more revolution than reformation. More information is forthcoming. But please put this “once in a lifetime” event on your calendar now!
