1. Commemoration of Martin Luther (Birth)

Observed November 13, 2016

We remember Martin Luther’s birth in order to help us remember Jesus as our only Savior. Luther helped us recover Scripture’s message that we are justified by grace through faith because of Christ. The Reformation was not about Luther. It was about Jesus—and it’s still all about Jesus!

2. Commemoration of Martin Luther (Death)

Observed February 19, 2017

The night that Luther died, he prayed Psalm 31:5 four times: “Into your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.” Just as Luther knew that he would not be separated from Jesus in death, we too know that Jesus does not let anything—not sin, not Satan, not death—separate us from Him.

3. Presentation of the Augsburg Confession

Observed June 25, 2017

“To confess” means “to say the same thing.” When we say the same thing Jesus says, we “confess” our faith in Him. On June 25, 1530, seven German princes stood before the Holy Roman Emperor in Augsburg and boldly confessed their faith. Today, remember the presentation of the Augsburg Confession and the important example it set about confessing one’s faith. And with the Church of all times and all nations, confess the life-saving faith God has told you about.
