As I opened the gate this weekend, my eyes swept over empty clay pots, dead flowers, rose bushes void of shape and color, molded feeders and a fountain filled with murky water and algae.

Providence Christian School celebrates Reformation Day

Oct. 31, 1517, was one of the turning points in world history, affecting not just church history, but the very course of civilization across the globe. On that day, Martin Luther, a German monk and university professor, nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenburg Church, in which he called for a return to the core teachings of Scripture (particularly as they pertain to salvation, grace, and the authority of Scripture). Providence Christian School recognizes this historical event with a celebration of Reformation Day, held each year on Oct. 31 (or the Friday closest to the 31st).
