Reformation Thursday

Sometime after the death of the early Protestant reformers – Luther, Zwingli,  Bucer,Calvin, and Melanchthon – a saying developed in Latin that went like this: ecclesia semper reformans, semper reformanda. In simple English, this saying means “the church is always reformed and always reforming.” Regardless of who said it, the idea is very much in keeping with Luther’s notion that there can never be an “entirely pure and purified church.” Real reformation is never attained! It is always a process. The Spirit continues to renew and reform the church in every age.

Etc.  Here.
