Martin Luther in Global Context

Thursday, Feb 27, 2020

1:30pm - 3:30pm

Lecture by:
Dr. Mary Philip

Martin Luther’s significance lies not in bringing about the Reformation but in taking the risk to name a thing for what it is — whether it was the church or the crotch — and rallying people to take a bold stance (even those who disagreed with him) so as to bring about a change, a turning, a metanoia. As nations, communities and peoples we are in the midst of crises — be it that of faith or fate. And the calling is in the air: The local and global calling for a turning or metanoia.
