Saturdays in July are a great time for getting away and taking a little road trip to a nearby community. Lutheran churches throughout northwestern Ohio are hoping you’ll consider them as a spot to visit and learn some history.
Twenty-two locations will hold open houses or presentations for the Reformation Crawl.
All will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 29, and again Oct. 21.
Organizer Jeannine Grimm said the sites will offer “glimpses of being Lutheran, past, present and future.” She said it’s sort of like a pub crawl, “except it’s a congregation crawl.”
The event marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of his 95 Theses, protesting the Catholic Church’s sale of indulgences, on the door of the Wittenberg Castle church. It’s generally marked as the start of the Protestant Reformation.
