Grace Has To Be Drunk Straight

This day in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses upon the door of the Wittenburg Church, knowing that on the following day, All Saints Day, people would flood through the doors and read it’s challenge to reform the church. It was the shot heard round the world that brought on the Protestant Reformation, a […]
