I have a better idea. Instead of worshipping a gory and fictitious bunch of ghosts riding brooms in black pointy hats – where did we get this stuff? – I propose that we look at a far more significant historical event that happened on this day.
On October 31, 1517 – 496 years ago today – Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on a church door in Germany and started the Protestant Reformation. This was not the first schism of the church, but I would love to see it be the last.
Four years from today the rebirth of a grass roots movement led by Streamside Unity in response to Jesus’s prayer for perfect unity could result in a historic meeting called Restoration Day, at least in the hearts of God’s children if not in his multiple institutions known as the church.
Why not call October 31 “Unity Day” and start dreaming about what God might want to accomplish four years from now?
Isn’t 500 years enough?
Order your copy of Streamside – Finding Peace through Perfect Unity – right here, recall what Jesus intended for us, and start praying.
See you right here next Unity Day!
