Bugenhagen’s Day

BugenhagenYesterday was the anniversary of Johannes Bugenhagen’s sleep in the Lord … but yesterday was about waking, not sleeping  (Christus resurrexit: vere resurrexit: Alleluia!). Still, Bugenhagen is worth remembering. Pastor at Wittenberg, he was, among other things, a brave soul. If you think preaching in seminary chapel is intimidating, imagine preaching with Luther sitting in the pew!  Read more on his life and influence at the Reformation500 website.
