Martin Luther Praying in Faith | Sunday | October 28 | 10:00 am | Great Hall
Most of us know Martin Luther as the father of the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century. Many of us do not know Luther’s deep anxiety about his own salvation that created a journey for him to become one of the greatest theologians in the history of Christianity. Not only was Luther a brilliant theologian, but he was also a man of deep piety. The devotional used in this session was compiled from a number of his writings and demonstrates his insight into the subject of prayer. He was deeply influenced by St Augustine and Bernard of Clairvaux. Luther’s faith was lively, earthy and practical; his logic was powerful; and his leadership skill was unparalleled.
