Be a Part of History! You have an opportunity to mark a moment steeped in history: on October 31, 2017, the world will recognize the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
St. John’s Episcopal Church, Worthington, is planning an all-day workshop to take place on Saturday, September 30, 2017. The workshop will provide participants with a basic understanding of the theologies and attractions of seven of the major voices of the Protestant Reformation: Martin Luther, Philip Melanchthon, Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin, John Knox, Menno Simons, and Thomas Cranmer.
Our event will bring together an exciting mix of clergy and academic specialists from around the area. The day will be moderated by our very own Rev. Maggie Leidheiser-Stoddard and it will feature five highly-respected speakers talking about the key reformers of the 16th century: Rev. Dr. Chuck Peterson, Dr. Fritz Graf, Dr. Sally Stamper, Pastor Joel Miller, and Dr. Diane Lobody (see schedule below for specifics). Registered participants will receive a reading list in advance and a packet of relevant materials on the day of the workshop.
Ample time has been allowed in the workshop schedule for participants to ask questions and engage in meaningful discussions with speakers. The day will begin with refreshments and registration, lunch will be provided (including vegetarian options), and we will wrap up with a small reception.
