Ordinary Sunday 30, Year B
South Sydney Uniting Church October 24, 2021
Mark 10: 46-52
Today we celebrate Reformation Sunday, a day where Protestant churches across the world celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther, who offered a chance for the Catholic Church to reform itself in 1517. Obviously, they didn’t see his protest in quite the same way that he did, as the challenges he proposed to the institution were too great and Protestantism was born.
There have been millions of words written about the dangerous life of Martin Luther and how his actions changed the history of the world as we know it. He was a radical, controversial, and uncompromising figure who challenged the power and status of the church of his day in unthinkable ways. He also believed things that we find untenable today and are clear abuses of his status and power.
