Happy Reformation Day

Forget Hallowe'en.

On this day in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg to stimulate discussion and debate. Someone copied them and took them to a printing press, and the rest is history.

488 years later, no one has managed to put out the wildfire that Luther's little spark touched off.

Soli Deo Gloria.
