5 Solas. It’s Still About Jesus!
Celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation
I’m looking forward to our next 5 weeks of worship together – praying and asking you to pray that we allow God to work his own reformation in us – like he did then, in the 1500’s.
I’ve always been frustrated by Protestant Reformation celebrations that only
celebrate the historical Reformation. I think it’s at least as important – if not more important – to ask God to continue
the constant Reformation of the heart to trust in: ·
Scripture Alone as our final authority ·
Grace Alone as God’s Unconditional Love for us all ·
Faith Alone as the only thing that saves ·
Christ Alone as the ultimate focus of all people everywhere ·
To God Alone be the Glory!
As such, we’ll be celebrating the amazing history of the Protestant Reformation that literally changed the face of the world at the time AND asking God to lead us through “Reformational Activities” such as: ·
Bring Your Bible to Church (starting this Sunday, Oct 22nd
Participate in a Peace Home Church, our new, small group ministry launching ·
Download the Peace App designed to integrate our vision and mission on your smartphone ·
Celebrate the launch of our first (partially online) Youth Confirmation Class ·
Celebrate the launch of our first “Discipleship > Membership” designed to invite visitors, and all of us, to become growing disciples
First, will you join me in prayer? Pray thanksgiving for the Protestant Reformation of the 1500’s and the “solas
” it launched. Pray that the same Holy Spirit create in us “Reformational Activities” designed to make sure, it’s still all about Jesus!
More details to come… I wanted to get out a quick note and ask you to pray, pray, pray and then look forward to see what God is doing among us, today!
