Faith is Dynamic

Tomorrow we, along with churches around the world, will celebrate the 500th anniversary of what’s considered the beginning of the Reformation of the Church by Martin Luther. Grace will be lifted up as a gift of God, and not something we earn or purchase. The Bible will be lifted up as a spiritual tool for all of us to hear a word from God. And, faith will be lifted up as our response to God’s grace.

Powerful stuff. How do we engage in reformation?

Ted Loder writes: The heart of Christianity; Protestant Christianity is a commitment to the continuing reformation of the church. The Reformation didn't end in the sixteenth century; it just began then. It’s going on today, hopefully. It's based on the reality that no person or institution controls God or speaks for God. Faith is dynamic, not static; a process, not a complicated belief system; a process in which we are all necessary, equal, and valuable to each other.

Sometimes we get stuck in our faith, in our doubts and in our fears. But remembering that faith is dynamic and a journey is hopeful. Faith as a process that we can walk together through is indeed a gift of grace.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 as we gather to celebrate Martin Luther and the continuing reformation of the church and of our faith.

Grace be with you,

Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed ..
Any suggestions? Kudos!
