Today is Reformation Day. It’s the day on which the Protestants remember the German monk/priest/theology professor Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the church door at Wittenberg. Luther’s theses were an invitation to debate and discuss, but as so often happens (when we nail things to doors) the discussion deteriorated, accusations were made, relationships were strained and a split ultimate occurred.1
Already, it has been a long and taxing week. Superstorms not withstanding, being a pastor whose home is attached to the church means that storms that derail the work week of others merely provide a soundtrack for me as I work. Over forty hours into my work week, I find that I need some entertainment. (And, I’m relatively sure that I am not the only one.) So here’s what I’m thinking…
Being that today is Reformation Day, I’d like to have a little Reformation-esque fun! As I have already been insulted by the great reformer himself, that bit of fun is out. Hence my proposition: Post a comment in which you share a (funny) story detailing a time in which an attempt at discussion resulted in a misunderstanding. 2 OR you can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a picture of something that you have nailed to your door in honor of Luther and his theses.3
I need to be clear: E-ducationalBooks.com is not running this contest. If you post a comment below you will not be entered to win anything. In order to participate you need to go to JoshuaRhone.com where you can enter to win.
- For more information on Martin Luther, the 95 Theses and the Protestant Reformation may I suggest that you check out the following books: Martin Luther: A Life by Martin Marty; Here I Stand by Rolland Bainton; Luther’s Theology of the Cross by Alister McGrath; and Christianity’s Dangerous Idea also by McGrath. ↩
- If you do, you will be entered to win a paperback copy of either A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller or The Metamorphosis Project by yours truly. One winner will be selected. ↩
- I’ll post all of the pictures that I receive (as long as they are clean) on my blog for my readers to enjoy. The picture deemed funniest by me will win a copy of both books. ↩
Whether through our own fallen temperament, willful disobedience, or as victims of the hurtful actions of others, many of us struggle with crippling emotions, among them perfectionism, depression, and low self-worth. The pain of such emotions is often present with us even though the incidents and relationships that caused the hurt may be long past.
Healing for Damaged Emotions, first published in 1981 and since translated into over 15 languages, has helped over a million readers worldwide deal honestly and successfully with their inner hurts. Through the realistic, scriptural approach that Dr. David Seamands brings to this deeply personal subject, you too can find healing–and then become an agent of healing for other strugglers.
