Romans 1:17. On the Christian Calendar each year is Reformation Sunday, observed the last Sunday in October. On October 31, 1517, the priest and scholar Martin Luther approaches the door of the Church in Wittenberg, Germany, and nails a piece of paper to it containing the 95 revolutionary theses that would begin the Protestant Reformation. In these theses, Luther condemned the excesses and corruption of the Roman Catholic Church, especially the papal practice of asking for payment—called “indulgences”—for the forgiveness of sins. In this sermon Pastor Barry introduces Martin Luther and shares how his life was transformed by the realization that, “the just shall live by faith”.

Sermon Notes: 

The news since August has been largely dominated by the tragedy in Lahaina, Maui.  The Lahaina wildfire was one of four blazes that broke out on Aug. 8, scorching a combined 10.4 square miles. More than 2,700 structures were destroyed. The death toll is staggering. Immediately following the tragedy, the questions began. Why?  How could it have been prevented? Who’s to blame?  Some of those who were directly affected by this tragedy may have ultimately asked, why did God allow it?  In this Mini-Sermon Series, Pastor Barry contemplates the questions raised by this tragedy and in thoughtful reflections offers hope for those rebuilding their lives.
