While the majority of my neighbours will be dawning ugly (and less than creative) ghoulish attire today, I will be focusing upon celebrating a much more significant event. October 31st will live in infamy, not for the celebration of Sam Hain, but for the day that a young monk by the name of Martin Luther decided to nail 95 debate theses to the doors of a Roman Church in Wittenberg. The firestorm that would proceed from that day in 1517 changed the world as we know it. It would spark a religious, economical and political change that continues to echo with us even in our generation. It would bring a time of the revival of the gospel and the centrality of the scriptures in the religious lives of Christians.
