Thirteen months ago, we kicked off our series of Refo Thursday posts with my initial reflections on Luther’s deathbed remark. In between, we’ve heard from everyone from seminary professors to songwriters to bloggers to pastors to farmers to college students to our own staff. They’ve reflected on quotes from Martin Luther and John Calvin in great quantity, but also from many others who contributed to the turbulent sixteenth century: Katie Luther, Erasmus, Menno Simons, Thomas Cranmer, Jeanne d’Albret, Katharina Zell, Philipp Melanchthon, Huldrych Zwingli, Pierre Viret, Johannes Bugenhagen, Argula von Grumbach, Catherine Parr, and Andreas Karlstadt. We’ve thought about issues of prayer, Scripture, fasting, church fellowship, worship, and following Christ–but also about education, war, suffering, marriage, children, politics, and so much more. Life, really.
Enjoy the rest.
