Good morning! I'm excited to see many of you in church today! This picture is one of the many beautiful works of stained glass that I saw in Germany a few months ago. This picture depicts Martin Luther posting his 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517. This is the event that we are celebrating this month. These theses weren't so powerful in and of themselves, but they sparked a movement that led to what many call a "rediscovery of the Gospel." Foundational to that was the doctrine of Faith Alone, as Romans 3:28 declares, "For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law." Come join us at 10AM this morning as we explore this wonderful doctrine! ...

Our Reformation series continues this week with "Grace Alone." This is a picture of the baptismal area in St. Peter and Paul Church, in Eisleben, Germany. This is the church where Martin Luther was baptized. What struck me about this particular church was the flooring. If you look closely, you can see that there are circles etched in the stone floor to represent ripples going out from the baptismal area. Lutherans believe that new life is given in baptism, all because of God's grace. I love that the ripples extend into the congregation, and they actually went all the way out the door of the church. The grace first given to us in baptism remains with us when we sit in the pews and when we leave the church building and go about our daily lives! This Sunday, we're going to talk about what "Grace Alone" means, according to Jesus' discussion with Nicodemus in John 3. Jesus says there, "Unless one is born again (later He says "of water and Spirit), he cannot see the kingdom of God." What does it mean to be born again, and how does that happen? Come to St. Paul's on Sunday to hear about it! ...

In celebration and remembrance of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation next month, we are going to be doing a sermon series on the 5 "Solas" of the Reformation, the five foundational truths on which the Reformation stood. The first one is "Word Alone." This is a picture I took of a portion of the pulpit from which Martin Luther taught students in his own home. "Verbo Solo" is Latin for Word Alone. Join us this Sunday as we explore what that means and why that's so important for us today!

In Christ,
Pastor Micah
