500th REFORMATION ANNIVERSARY ACTIVITIES

By Sonya Connolly, in News

REFORMATION ART SHOW AND AUCTION: Friday, October 27, 6:30-9:30pm at Zion Lutheran Church (400 E. Lexington St., Baltimore). Eight young artists of color from Baltimore have been creating works of art, visual and performance, that communicate their understanding of faith and reformation in the 21st century. Auction supports The Center for Grace-Full Living at Amazing Grace Lutheran Church in Baltimore and The Sand Gallery.

 REFORMATION FESTIVAL: Saturday, October 28, 1-4pm at Zion Lutheran Church (400 E Lexington St., Baltimore). Features booths with different aspects of life during Luther’s time – medicine, toys, songs, crafts, and theology of the middle ages. Children may collect stamps from different booths to earn a prize. There will also be a marketplace with crafts, sausages and beer for sale.

 METRO DC SYNOD REFORMATION SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE: Sunday, October 29, 4 p.m. at the Washington National Cathedral (3101 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, D.C.). Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will preach.

 LUTHER ART EXHIBIT: The Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St., Baltimore. Free. Open Wed-Sun from 10-5

through October 29. Uncertain Times: Martin Luther’s Remedies for the Soul focuses on the ways in which Martin Luther comforted the distressed souls of his contemporaries by approaching them as a father, a husband, and a friend—rather than as a priest or theologian.

 LUTHER OPERA PREMIERE: Sunday, November 5, 4pm at Christ Lutheran Inner Harbor (701 S. Charles St., Baltimore). Hollis Thoms’ latest opera, And did the World with Devils Swarm, was written to commemorate the Reformation’s 500th Anniversary. It focuses on Martin and Katie’s marriage and relationship.
