Reformation 500 -- Luther Lecture Series


2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the start of the Lutheran Reformation.  Like him or hate him, Martin Luther has left an imprint on the Christian Church.  What moved Luther to do what he did?  Why do his life life and confession still matter today?  Good Shepherd will be hosting a series of discussions about Luther throughout 2017.

Our next session will be THIS SUNDAY (February 12) at 6:00 PM.  This is intended to be an interactive discussion as well as informational.  The topic for February will be “Life in a Monastery.”  Desserts will be served, and door prizes (yes, plural!) will be given.  All are welcome.

        For future reference, the schedule for the remainder of the lectures, conducted on Sundays at 6:00 PM, is:
