Mini-Reformation Tour, part 1

Hello everyone!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written… There were a couple of trips that I’ve been on since my last blog post, but I’ll hold writing on them for a later date. 

I am currently in Germany, and wow, it’s good to be back. My German skills seem to have diminished some, but my memory of the city of Berlin was surprisingly intact. 

Why am I in Germany?

For the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, of course!

My family, friends, and co-workers who have heard me rave about this since October of last year are probably tired of hearing about it. But I cannot explain how excited I am to be “in the room where it happens,” per-say, when it comes to this historic mark of events that changed the world. 

Over the next few days I’ll be writing about my adventures and discoveries in three towns where Martin Luther, one of the spiritual giants of the Protestant Reformation, lived and worked. 

I hope you will choose to come along for the ride. 🙂

Before the mini-tour begins, however, I am happy to say that I was able to spend a day and a half in Berlin to visit dear friends and show my mom, who’s joined me on this adventure, the sights of her very first continental European city. 

Enjoy some of our photos from today excursions (after about 10 hours of traveling. I’ll write more about my experience with WOW Airlines later…).

I would love to get comments from you. Let me know things I should see while here. What are some of your favorite quotes from Luther or other reformers?
