Reformation

Here's a chance to practice writing skills, my faithful readers, by joining me in posting a story with a picture for Wednesday Wit and Wisdom.  The challenge is to post a picture on your blog, then write a short story or a poem about the picture as a writing exercise. When your blog us ready, link up for others to read. Feel free to also add your picture and story to another link of your choice. The link up is on my WWW page here. This is #43!


Our church (Lutheran) recently celebrated Reformation Sunday...the 499th year since Martin Luther and supporters took a different direction from Rome.


Martin Luther also translated the Bible into German for his countrymen. My older brother, who is a Lutheran Minister, does Luther sermons dressed as Martin Luther may have dressed in his day. Many of these quotes are inspirational yet today:
  • Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. Martin Luther
  • God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars. Martin Luther
  • I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess. Martin Luther

It's your turn. We took this picture of the church in Whittenburg (Lutherstaad in Germany), where Luther's theses are on the wall, and he is buried there. Find a picture of meaning to you, write a story and post it on your blog...then come back and join in. I'd enjoy reading your thoughts.
