Saturday Seminar with the Revd Dr Gerald Hobbs
Five hundred years ago, in a small college town in central Europe, a young Catholic monk and professor of Bible set in motion a religious upheaval that in the end divided the western Christian world between Roman Catholics and Protestants. At the outset Martin Luther had no such intention. But along his troubled spiritual journey, he came to the bold conclusion that the Church was getting in the way of the Gospel; that Church dogmas and practices were preventing the faithful from hearing the living Word of God. Luther’s heritage for today is the reminder that religion, however good, is not the God who is ever free to speak into our world a living and liberating word.
