Pastor Rike’s Sermon

Reformation Sunday is really about identity.  It is a recognition that theological content matters because it shapes people. The specific theological content remembered on this Reformation Sunday is that associated with Martin Luther.

During his life but even more after his death, Luther was regarded as a kind of contemporary prophet. He did what the Old Testament prophets had done. Prophets were the people to whom the Lord revealed a word or message largely forgotten, avoided, or rejected by most other people. By speaking that revealed word, prophets pointed people again to the life God created them to live.
