We celebrated the 500th anniversary in many ways, from concerts and performances to lectures and parades. While the 500th anniversary is now behind us, the Reformation itself is ahead of us, each and every day.
Even as celebrations continue throughout 2018, here’s a listing of those events still happening, and resources still available to help keep the Reformation alive.
And if you have a special Reformation website or celebration you’d like us to highlight, let us know so we can share!
