What has been planned for the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation? What is happening in Europe and what is happening in Canada and the United States? I am not sure, this spot, for instance, declares that it is a source: http://lutheranreformation.org/. I will try to check it out. One event that is talked about is a 2017 Germany Tour, taking place from May 1 to the 11th. It is advertised thus:
“Embark on a magnificent theological and historical tour of Germany and Austria in the very year of the Reformation’s 500th anniversary. This 11-day whirlwind trip, called In the Steps of Martin Luther, features milestone moments in the great reformer’s life—from his baptism in Eisleben and ordination at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Erfurt to his Wittenberg Castle hideaway.” – See more at: http://lutheranreformation.org/get-involved/2017-germany-tour/#sthash.8TtYSuoj.dpuf
Probably the mainstream media will have little to say on the 500th anniversary, I expect. I need to get going and contact institutions like Canada Post to see about possibly getting a stamp made for Charles Chiniquy. I have contacted the McCord Museum in Quebec about Chiniquy but I have not heard anything from them yet. One can only try and see what happens, I hope it will be an good year to publicize what Martin Luther and the Canadian Luther has done and what role Chiniquy played in Canada as this year is also the 150 anniversary of Canadian Confederation!
