October 26 is Reformation Sunday.  On October 31 [All Hallow's Eve], 1517, Martin Luther, an Augustinian monk, posted his 95 Theses for debate on the door of the Wittenberg Cathedral in Saxony.  Luther’s action launched the Protestant Reformation in Europe.  The year 2014 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Knox, a disciple of the Genevan reformer John Calvin, leader of the Scottish Reformation, and author of the Scots Confession of 1560.
