Earlier this fall, the Lutheran Church celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Legend has it that on Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his "95 Theses" on the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church, in Germany. Over time we may have made this act more dramatic than it was intended. Luther did not seek to be revolutionary. What he nailed on the door of the church was a list of questions and propositions for debate, not a declaration of war.
