      Thanks for asking! The DVD is not yet available but will likely be so this coming Spring. We will communicate to the church of its availability. Please note also that the two-hour documentary will be shown over PBS the Fall 2017, quite wonderful.

  2. Can this documentary be purchased for personal showing in private homes? If,so, where do we purchase it from?
    Thank you!

  3. My son is performing next spring in Germany/Austria for the Reformation Anniv. with Concordia University Irvine Choir. I’m looking for a calendar or DVD (Christmas gift) of the sites in Germany during the Reformation to help prepare him. Is the LCMS offering any such “souvenirs?”

  4. Thanks a lot for the very meaningful information about the inaugural celebration of the 500th Reformation anniversary.
    I would like to comment on the theme of the Synod’s 500th anniversary of the Reformation celebrations. It is not about Jesus. It is a person Jesus. “It’s Still Jesus”
    Shall our congregation in India adapt the theme It’s Still Jesus” for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation celebrations.? If so, the St Paul’s Lutheran Church, Ernakulam, Kochi-682 016, Kerala, South India will be celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation under the theme “It’s Still Jesus”
    Thanking you,
    Yours in Him,
    With mutual prayers,

      Pastor Marshall,

      Advent greetings in His name.

      Thank you for your insight on Synod’s theme: It’s Still All About Jesus!

      The “about” should be understood not as downplaying at all the person of Jesus as both God and Man. Of course, as you and I gladly confess, we don’t follow certain principles or rules but a person, THE person, Jesus Christ. We know God in the man, Jesus of Nazareth, the Second Person of the Trinity.

      If you desire to change the theme to “It’s Still Jesus” this is very appropriate and is totally up to you, as you know your context better than us.

      Cordially in Christ,
