Reformation Day

Today is Halloween. Everyone knows that.

But it is also another holiday.

On this date in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses onto a door in Wittenberg confronting the sale of indulgences, questioning the pope, and launching the world into a new religious era.

In short, it was kind of a big deal.

As a seminary graduate, my theological nerdiness shows on days like today. I typically celebrate by reading a little history. Thinking about what the world must have been like 5oo years ago. And inserting my likeness into cardboard cutouts of famous theologians.

The results of our “photo shoot” are recorded here for your viewing and giggling pleasure, illustrating the many faces of reformed theologians.

First we have,

“Joy of the Lord” Calvin

Similar, but also more elusive, “I know something that you don’t” Calvin.

“My first work is a seven volume set” intimidatingly intelligent and verbose Calvin.

And finally…

IMG_0842“I ate toooo much” Luther.

 

Happy Reformation Day!
