Growing Together Through God's Grace

Pastors Points

Reformation: the action or process of reforming an institution or practice. October 31 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation of the Church. What began as Luther’s invitation to discuss his concern over certain Church practices, such as the selling of indulgences, became a world-changing, history-changing event! Today, the Lutheran Church (just one of many Protestant Churches) has a multi-century history of proclaiming God’s grace given freely. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God – not the result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 1:8)

Five hundred years later, the message of grace is still so very needed in our world- the message that we proclaim so boldly is relevant and essential. Grace prompts our discussions with other faiths, helping us to be humble with Jews, Muslims, and even the Catholic Church from which we broke. Grace calls us to be forgiving of those who have hurt us, reaching across divides towards reconciliation. Grace urges us to live as blessings to others because that is the only proper response to God’s grace given to us.

As we commemorate the Reformation’s 500th anniversary, let’s do more than party… let’s live as people who are truly thankful for the grace we’ve been shown by offering grace to all of God’s creation.

Peace, Pastor Krais
