God's Hand Leading Martin Luther - by Rev. Wayne Olson
Now through 19 November Pastor Olson has written weekly information about the life and work of Martin Luther.
May 21: It Begins at Birth.
As part of our 500th Anniversary of the Reformation we begin this Sunday with the beginning of the journey that God used to reform the church. The journey begins with a man named Hans Luder and his wife Margarethe who lived in Eisleben, Saxony. Hans was a copper miner who was moderately successful. Evidence of his success was the fact that he had two foundries. On November 10, 1483, Margarethe gave birth to a son which happened to be the day before the feast day for St. Martin of Tours. Therefore, they had their newborn son baptized on the feast day naming him Martin after the Saint.
