Congregation

Always being made new: Martin Luther – Man, Monk and Reformer at 500

Sunday, July 30, 2017 | 11:30am

In July, we welcome the Rev. John Lillie, pastor of Lutheran Church of the Foothills, Tucson, Arizona, who will be spending part of his sabbatical with us at the Cathedral. In addition to participating in our daily worship life, he invites us to take a two-part journey, Always being made new, exploring how our walk of faith is in a constant state of reformation. Using visuals to highlight steps on the way, Part I will take us from our earliest Biblical narratives through various milestone changes, landing in the early 16th century. Part II will explore Martin Luther—Man, Monk, and Reformer at 500. Who was this man? What is his legacy for us today?

Who was this man? Why did he have such an impact on Western culture? How did his marriage to Catherine von Bora support the reformation movement? Was Luther anti-Semitic? What is his legacy for us today? We'll aim to gain a better understanding of the complexities of Martin Luther's personality.

Open to all!
