From Barbara Wood, Director of Development, Beatitudes Campus:
Opportunities to explore the Reformation’s impact include movie, panel, music and worship.
This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, a momentous religious revolution that shaped theology, history and the lives of all people around the world and continue to do so today. Beatitudes Campus will hold a week-long exploration of this important point in history and discuss how we continue to reform and develop our faith today.
“Beatitudes Campus is a community that welcomes all faiths and denominations,” says Peggy Roberts, senior vice president of spiritual life. “The Reformation was a tumultuous and divisive time in history and transformed people’s understanding of their personal faith. We continue our quest to learn about all faith traditions.”
The community is invited to explore the history of the reformation and attend the following events, which will shed light on how such a movement can still affect our lives today. The following events are free and open to the public.
