Reformation Day: Opening of 500th Anniversary Year
Recently, Rev. Terry Richardson, pastor of Hope Lutheran Church in Nanaimo, and I spent time together for lunch to celebrate Reformation Day. This year begins a year of celebration of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther.
Rev. Terry and I have collaborated in prison ministry for more than 20 years, and share a wonderful friendship. I am delighted that we are now living on Vancouver Island, affording us more opportunities to proclaim God’s mercy together.
