      I do agree to that! I've even encountered people who insisted that they did not want to know anything about the history of Christianity, just (they said) what's in the Bible, although I didn't pick up any indications that they knew much about it either.

      A member at church said that the local classical radio station has been making mention of the Reformation and Martin Luther and even playing some of his music. That's really cool!

      He's famous, despite being 500 years dead (well less than 500, more like 480). Some of his hymns - I don't know many really - are good.

      We've had about four special evening classes to discuss the reason for the Reformation. Our all-church summer Sunday School class went over church history up to the Reformation to show why the Reformation was desperately needed.
      On Tuesday evening there is a community invited Reformation celebration at the church. Dress up as a Reformer. Shall I go as Menno Simons and call for separation of church and state?

      We're showing a movie about Luther next Sunday evening with a bit of a discussion (which I'm leading).

      I tried to find Good Shepherd in Herndon, got lost and drove back home. That was not fun. I did try and I shot off an apology to my pastor.

      The last night they had a Lutherfest, which is basically an Octoberfest Lutheran style and today the liturgical color was red.

      But Mr Luther died of old age (well, technically the illnesses of old age really) so why red? Red is for martyrs.

      Is it? I haven't noticed, I thought it was silver/white and gold.

      PS: I just checked, it is in fact red for Pentecost Sunday. I ought to check why
