The Feast of Indulgences Meal

Feast

As some of you know, Martin Luther wrote his 95 Theses in opposition to the practice of selling, indulgences: that is, selling the promise of forgiveness of sins and entry into heaven from purgatory in the church of the middle ages.

 

In a play on words we are doing a spin on this practice, we will be holding a meal following the 11:00 a.m. service on Reformation Sunday this year, October 29. We are inviting all members of Amazing Grace, friends and visitors are also welcome, to come and celebrate the heritage of our Lutheran faith and tradition, based in the Reformation led by Martin Luther. This is not your standard church potluck. It will be a prepared meal, and all those in attendance will be served their meal by the members of Amazing Grace Church Council. The meal is free to all in attendance, since God’s grace is free to all, through faith in Jesus Christ. Please come and indulge yourselves, as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation!

Reformation Sunday

Martin Luther taught that the church should constantly be reforming. In preparing for Reformation Sunday, we want to know what reforms you think should be taking place now in the overall church (not just Amazing Grace, but the overall church).  Please send an email with your response to office@tisgrace.org  We will be compiling and printing these responses and we will print our own 95 Theses for Amazing Grace Lutheran Church.
