Event description

Description

Lutherans and all Protestants around the world are marking 2017 as the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a Christian movement that changed world history in 1517. When Martin Luther nailed his 97 Theses on the church door on October 31, he set off a revolution that reformed Christianity.

Local Lutherans are observing the anniversary with special worship services and Bible studies around Luther's Small Catechism. In a special event on Saturday, September 16, they will gather to hear a lecture by Dr. Luther, as portrayed by Rev. Al Staggs. This actor powerfully conveys Luther's convictions about justification by grace, while offering insights into Luther's character, theology and faith, all with humor and grace. As Stagg's Luther critiques the greed and conspicuous consumption that the reformer witnessed in sixteenth century Germany, the audience hears a challenge that still applies to Christians today.

An Evening With Martin Luther:Evolution of Faith will be held at the Medina Performing Arts Center at 777 E. Union Street in Medina. The performance will begin at 7:00pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and all students will be admitted free of charge.
