Happy Reformation Day

Happy reformation day!

I am not particularly knowledgeable about Martin Luther, the Reformation, or church history. That was more my Dad’s thing (he has some articles on his blog – click here  or here  – if you want to read more).

But this day (as on many other days), I think of my Daddy. I love this picture of him, because it represents so much of who he was: his humor and sense of good fun, his love of surprising people and making them smile, his earnest desire to impart knowledge and wisdom and Bible truths (and who could forget a lesson when their teacher was dressed in brown robes?). But most importantly, it reminds me of the bottom line – that there is nothing more vital than carrying on the very work that Jesus began and handed on to his disciples in the first century – that work that we have the great privilege and great responsibility to carry out even today, whether we be dressed in medieval robes, blue jeans, or whatever else. May we return to the clear fount, the source.

Thus says the Lord:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
    and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
    and find rest for your souls.
Jeremiah 6:16
