November 2017 Newsletter


In honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation (Oct. 31, 1517) beginning with the posting of the 95 theses on the door of the church in Wittenburg by Martin Luther, I share with you one of his plenteous quotes:

"Feelings come and feelings go,
And feelings are deceiving;
My warrant is the Word of God--
Naught else is worth believing.

Though all my heart should feel condemned
For want of some sweet token,
There is One greater than my heart
Whose Word cannot be broken.

I'll trust in God's unchanging Word
Till soul and body sever,
For, though all things shall pass away,
Martin Luther

Martin Luther was quite the rebel and he stood up to fierce criticism and arguments about his idea to create a "different church for the believers." We can be grateful to him for standing up and during this month of November as we share Thanksgiving for all kinds of things, be thankful for the rich history and heritage that we share with Christians around the world.
