I can’t believe we’ve gone the whole day without any of our Lutheran contributors mentioning Reformation Day. (Um, we do have some Lutherans around here, don’t we? Note to self: Get some Lutherans.)
Fortunately, one of my fellow Baptists, Timothy George, founding dean of Beeson Divinity, has it covered with his new article celebrating Luther’s posting of the Ninety-Five Theses. Perhaps that is fitting since, as George notes, “On this Reformation Day, it is good to remember that Martin Luther belongs to the entire Church, not only to Lutherans and Protestants, just as Thomas Aquinas is a treasury of Christian wisdom for faithful believers of all denominations, not simply for Dominicans and Catholics.”
Update: It turns out the reason the Lutherans didn’t post because they can read a calendar – Reformation Day isn’t until tomorrow. Oops. What can say, I’m a Baptist.
