in Observance of
The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation
Pastor Miller’s Sermon
500 Years of the Reformation: Repentance or Celebration?
A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
Lord, Keep Us Steadfast in Your Word
The Church of Christ, in Every Age
O Lord, We Praise Yo
Salvation unto Us Has Come
Thoughts from Pastor Miller
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This Sunday, October 29, is a once in a lifetime opportunity: the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Join your brothers and sisters in Christ at 11 a.m. Mass and 5 p.m. Vespers (Bach Choir and Players including timpani, brass, woodwinds, and strings). Also, noted Bach historian Michael Marissen will present a lecture at 3:45 p.m.
These are stunning days at Holy Trinity. Last Sunday, New Members Classes had 15 people in attendance who will soon join our congregation! We ran out of bulletins at Mass–that is a problem I love! 25 people attended the “Refreshing Lutheran Themes” class. And more than 200 people attended the first Bach Vespers of the season–and it was breathtaking.
I hope you are as thrilled as I am. Again, gather together for a huge Reformation celebration this Sunday, October 29!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Wilbert Miller
