Rick Steves “LUTHER AND THE REFORMATION” is available. As the 5ooth anniversary of the Reformation approached, Rick Steves wanted to create for his popular PBS series a
s
pecial devoted to Martin luther and the ways in which his tumultuous time helped lead to the Modern Age. With
"L
uther and the Reformation" Mr. Steves, a member of Trinity Lutheran Church Lynnwood, Washington, produced a documentary which highlighted the historic, economic and social context of the Reformation. He intended this documentary to be a resource for congregations. Joy has received a DVD copy of Mr. Steve's work. It is available to anyone who wishes to borrow and view it. Additionally, this documentary may be watched online at ELCA.org/ricksteves.
