    Travel to Germany 2017:  Meeting Feb. 21 500th Anniversary of the Reformation The beginning of our tradition can become the stuff of legend, but it rose out of real people’s struggles to find a God of love and a faith that mattered. In 2017, it will have been 500 years since Luther nailed the 95 Theses and began a debate about the faith. Make the history come to life by exploring the places where these events happened. Learn more! On February 21, after worship, we welcome Pastor Lindsay Jordan of Christ the King, Delafield. He’ll present about his recent tour of Germany and invite our congregation to join in an 11 day tour of Germany with Christ the King, May 9-19, 2017. This tour would hit all the highlights of the Reformation, following Luther’s life, as well as exploring the highlights of more recent German history. The package price for the tour, including airfare from Chicago, lodging, breakfasts/dinners, is $4374/pp/double occupancy. If you’re interested in seeing more of Europe, a possibility might be Germany, Austria, Italy. This would be July 1-12, 2017, $4895 In late 2016-2017, Pastor Elizabeth will be leading a number of sessions and writing about the Reformation to prepare us to commemorate this historic event, understand our heritage, and join the movement forward into greater Christian unity.
