Nearly 500 Years After Protestant Reformation, Area Catholics and Lutherans Eye Reconciliation

Oct 27, 2014

When Martin Luther posted his 95 theses to a church door in the year 1517, he started a revolution that split mainstream Christianity into Catholics and Protestants.  But in the last few decades, Catholics and Lutherans around the world have worked toward reconciliation, and congregations in the Chattanooga area will come together for a special service on October 31st to commemorate the 497th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and to celebrate work toward unity.  In this segment, we discuss the history of all this with:

-Pastor Jeff Crim from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Ascension in East Ridge

-Bishop H. Julian Gordy of the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

-Cardinal Justin Rigali, Roman Catholic Archbishop Emeritus of Philadelphia
