Jeremiah 31:31-34 & Romans 3:19-28
Reformation Sunday

On Reformation Sunday, we for whom the roots of our particular traditions within Christianity find their roots in the work and witness of the Protestant Reformers of the 16th century remember and celebrate our history and heritage, give thanks for the ways our traditions' ancestors shaped the faith we still proclaim today, and (most importantly) pray for the Holy Spirit’s power to come among us once more, to continue renewing and reshaping the church for faithfulness, witness, and courage in each tomorrow as we make new history together. Like those Reformers of our past, we discover again and again that our strongest, most vital, most faithful, and most effective efforts for change and renewal -- for churches and for us as individuals -- come when we, like them, have the insight to get "Back to the Basics".
