1 A Monthly Publication of Shepherd of the Sea SEPTEMBER East Fort Macon Road, Atlantic Beach, NC Be ready and keep ready, you and all your hosts that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. (Ezekiel 38:7) Get ready! Something big is about to happen. October 2017 will mark 500 years since Martin Luther started the Reformation with his 95 thesis. That means that this October will be year 499. As a lead up to the 500th anniversary, we at Shepherd of the Sea will be embarking on a celebration the scale of which has never been seen at this church before. This will be a celebration for not just a day or a week. It will not be a celebration for just a month or a season. No, we will be celebrating this milestone for an entire year (and beyond). Something like this comes around just once in a lifetime. Actually, it is even less than that. It only comes around once every 500 years. This is big! So what do we have in mind? Well, let me count some of the ways * We will be beginning a new faith formation class for adults and older youth that will exam ine aspects of the Reformation and how it affects us today. * We will be using special Reformation missalettes for the next year. * We will be trying some new liturgies and music, and maybe even sing some unfamiliar hymns. * There will be some special services and some additional Bible study opportunities. * Plus anything else I can think of in the next year! Some of these things will begin in September, others will begin in October, and still others will come later. The 500th anniversary provides a unique opportunity, as Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton has said, to live into our Lutheran identity. So get ready! Grace + Peace, Pastor Scott 1
