Reformation Sunday – Hymn Sing

On Sunday October 28th we held our second annual Reformation Sunday Hymn Sing. It was a good time last year  we thought we’d try it again. This is a fun way for us to celebrate our Lutheran heritage and sing some of the wonderful historical hymnody we enjoy in our Lutheran church. A thanks to everyone who was willing to show up and sing around our living room!

Today we also presented a My First Catechism to Gerhardt per our tradition at his age. He’s so proud of himself for how much of it he’s read so far.

October 29th was Reformation Sunday. This October 31st marked the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting the 95 Thesis in the church door in Wittenberg. We Lutherans get really nerdy about that.

Our church held their second annual Germafest this weekend. I was so happy that they booked the German American Society Heimat Tanzers including the youth dancing group of which our family makes up half. This meant the kiddos would get to dance to a familiar crowd.
