    Nicely done, Rachel.

    Those four words…grace, faith, scripture and Christ alone…have long ago untangled a myriad of erroneous teachings in my childhood. Good article.

    Good points. If indeed “it’s still all about Jesus”, then perhaps indulgence in hagiographies of Luther is best avoided.

    This was so well written. I felt similarly about the ways we portray Martin Luther during this awesome and celebratory time. He’s important, but he isn’t Jesus. Thank you for this piece!

  5. I did enjoy with what you wrote, Rachel, about the true sipirit of Reformatório, specially about “him”, “them” and “us”. I am Chaplin and psychologist at ULBRA – Lutheran University of Brazil. Thank you for your wise words.

  6. Instead If the word Reformatório, It has to be Reformation. Sorry.

  7. Yes, indeed, for God’s glory alone!
