Join us for movie night! “Luther: The Idea that Changed the World”

In the celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, St. John’s invites the community to see the new film

“Luther: The Idea that Changed the World” this Saturday, Oct. 21 at 6pm.

The movie will be projected onto a large screen and snacks and drinks will be provided. Each person attending will receive a free Bible Study that addresses themes from the movie.  500 years ago, Martin Luther triggered a seismic upheaval that rocked the western world—with an impact that continues to reverberate to this day. Indeed the Reformation was “The Idea that Changed the World.”  The idea that changed the world then and now is God’s Word that tells us the story of God’s love in Christ and how in Christ alone by Grace Alone through Faith Alone in God’s Word Alone we are given the gift of forgiveness and salvation. This inspirational new film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, secret hideouts, and life-or-death showdowns.  At the same time, it’s a story about the most important questions of life, including “Who am I?” “What is my purpose” and “How do I get right with God?” Martin Luther discovered the answers to these questions when he studied the Word of God, the Bible.

In the 16th Century very few people had access to the Bible and very few could read it because it was in Latin. Luther translated the Bible into the language of the people and as Luther said about the impact of the reformation – the Word of God did everything.  Join us for this very informative movie about the Reformation that affected not only Christianity impacted many aspects of political and social life.
