In 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 thesis written in Latin to the church door in Wittenberg for academic debate over what he perceived to be abuses in the Roman Catholic Church. We don’t know who, but it was translated into the vernacular and quickly disseminated due to the new technology of the printing press along with other writings of this young professor from Wittenberg. In a short time, many people in Europe found their consciences set free from the traditions of man that had bound them. Even more importantly, as God’s law held their consciences in fear of the judgement before His throne, they heard the good news of how the finished work of a gracious Savior Jesus Christ relieved them of the burden of their sin and guilt so they could anticipate being welcomed into heaven through faith in this gift. A hunger for the Gospel presented in their language grew. We are praying the same hunger will draw you to come to hear of God’s gracious gift this summer. We look forward to seeing you in June!
