Reformation day

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther hung his 95 thesis on the door of the wittenburg church.This major historical event marked the emerging birth of the church. People started reading the Bible in their own tongue, praying directly to God (no priest), and pursuing a personal relationship with Christ.

the idea for the day is to plan a Reformation Day celebration to celebrate the occasion. You can do as much or as little, depending on who you want to invite. If you and your CB want to just have a family thing, you could put on a play, do some games, or read an interesting historical account of the reformation. If you want to plan something bigger (maybe for your church, or group of friends) you could do much more.

Some ideas we have used include:

*Put together a play or skit (there are also some available onlne, both free and for a price)

*Have Reformation themed foods (anywhere from a wittenburg churchdoor cake, to German dishes such as sauerkraut)

*Give a brief historical account

*Reformation Era costumes

*A trivia game with prizes

*Coffer toss

*Life of Luther maze

*Bible relay

*Bible translators clue
