Happy 500th’s Reformation day, everyone!
It may only be 9 am, but my day has already gotten off to an…interesting start! I attended a Lutheran church last Sunday but was disappointed when no one mentioned it was Reformation Sunday. After all, this is the 500th anniversary. I assumed every church would celebrate! An announcer did mention, though, that they would have Bible study on Tuesday morning, “actual Reformation Day.”
He literally said “actual Reformation Day,” so I showed up to Bible study this morning assuming the pastor would at least mention it. But…
Nothing. Not one word. Not even a very good Bible study, either. The pastor read from the hymnal and that was about it. Afterwards, he let his dog out of the office and the dog promptly peed on my shoes and then licked it up. No one found this strange.
Throughout the study, the 20 somethin’ year old guy sitting next to me kept pulling out a legit, cotton handkerchief and loudly blowing his nose. I am pretty sure he had a cold. It added to the oddity of the situation.
With a such a morning, I expect great things from the rest of this day!
