is full of meaningful moments. Celebrating milestones helps bring an awareness
of God’s presence into the home and highlights the rituals of daily life
experiences. Observing the Reformation each year on October 31st is
an important recognition of the history of our faith and reminds us that we
continue to live the Reformation today.
The Reformation Milestone is an opportunity to revisit
and read the scripture quoted by Luther and highlighted in Luther’s writings in
order to equip us to live it out in our everyday lives. This celebration each
year reminds us how the Reformation impacted education, language, worship,
music, individualism, and an understanding of the church itself, one that
extoled the “priesthood of all believers” and the message of the gospel that
became crystalized in justification by grace through faith.
This milestone includes the Four
Keys for practicing faith outline which encourages the connection between home
and congregation. A simple five-step structure is also included to
intentionally invite the faith community to recognize the milestone and
celebrate it together to establish a solid base for community outreach.
These pottery Reformation stones are individually hand-crafted and
available at a low cost to purchase and gift as meaningful reminders of this milestone
