Lutheran Reformation 500 Service

Sunday, October 29, 2017 | 4:00pm

The year 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the beginning of what became known as the Reformation.

A worship service commemorating the Reformation is sponsored annually by the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod of the ELCA.

Reformation Sunday is observed in October, recalling Martin Luther’s posting of 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517. The theses were theological issues Luther wished to debate with the hope that the church would reform its practice and preaching to be more consistent with the Word of God as contained in the Bible. The act sparked a movement in history known as the Reformation and laid foundations for the Lutheran tradition. A hymn penned by Luther, “A Mighty Fortress is our God,” is often sung at this service.
