Luther's daring revolution: The Reformation 500 years on Reconciliation instead of hero worshiping Right from the beginning, on October 21, 2016, this year of commemoration of the Reformation was characterized by an ecumenical approach.
In the past, Protestant churches celebrated major Reformation anniversaries by worshiping Martin Luther as a hero — but this time it's different.
The church believes these sacraments were instituted by Jesus and that they confer God's grace.There are rather several tens of thousands of different denominations around the world.Officially, all of these many churches are considered equal. The pope Protestants are not open at all to papal primacy.The Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) wishes to turn the celebrations of "500 Years of Reformation" into a common celebration of Christ with the Catholic Church.Through various events, both sides will pay tribute to Martin Luther while emphasizing their will to overcome divisions.
Most Protestant churches only practice two of these sacraments: baptism and the Eucharist (called Lord's Supper).
