October 31st will mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Reformation Day is observed this year on Sunday, October 29th. Zion will celebrate with Divine Service 3 and Holy Communion.
Traditionally, 31 October 1517 is widely held to be the day German monk Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Electorate of Saxony, within the Holy Roman Empire.
LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison will join the Archbishop of Chicago and the president of Wheaton College for “The Reformation at 500: An Interdenominational Conversation,” which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30, at Concordia University Chicago.
Harrison, Cardinal Blase J. Cupich and Rev. Dr. Philip Ryken will have an unprecedented dialogue on the eve of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation. The event will be in the Chapel of Our Lord on the CU Chicago campus in River Forest, Ill.
The scholars will examine the historic and theological divisions emerging from the Reformation, and they will discuss shared concerns and common causes among today’s Christian churches.
Manya Brachear Pashman, a religion correspondent for the Chicago Tribune, will moderate the discussion.
The public is invited to attend. Registration opens Aug. 15, and an online RSVP is required for the event. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions and meet the speakers.
