Reformation Sunday

Sunday, November 15th, 2020

October 25: Reformation Sunday. All month in October we spend some time reading about Martin Luther and the Reformation. It’s always such a festive day.

Saturday turned out to be a gorgeous day but Sunday was as they said, gray, cold and windy. Anyway, we got some good ones.
