Reformation Sunday


When I first visited a Lutheran church, which was the home church of my then-finance, I was very worried. Because, since beginning to explore Christianity, I had discovered that Christians are a diverse bunch. And when attending one of their meetings, one could find oneself either bored to death by the mediocrity of it or—more of a concern for me personally—terrified by the level of enthusiasm. Hour-long sermons, altar calls, strange rituals involving tears and the consistent breaking of one’s personal space bubble, one could never know what to expect when attending a Christian gathering. I shared my concerns with Cheryl who told me that at the Lutheran church, this was the last thing I needed to worry about. [To hear the entire sermon, click on the arrow above.]
