Ironic Site Selection
As the Protestant Reformed Churches prepare for the celebration of our seventy-fifth anniversary, I wonder if anyone else sees the irony in the selection of this place to celebrate? If the Lutheran churches had celebrated their anniversary at the Vatican seventy-five years after the theses had been nailed to the church door, that esteemed professor of theology who had nailed the ninety-five theses on the door of the Castle Church at Wittenberg would have nailed them to the wall and then dieted on the worms.
I pray that our denomination remains faithful to the truth and that God remains faithful to His people. May the Lord not strike our churches with a severe case of historical or spiritual amnesia. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Let the celebration begin!
