When Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Roman Catholicism little did he know the impact his proclamation would have on the world. Through his protest of heretical practices in the Church of Rome, The Reformation was born.
Along with The Reformation came the rediscovery of congregational singing. Luther was convinced of the power of music.
"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" is arguably the most powerful hymn to come out of The Reformation. Based on Psalm 46, it was the battle cry of Christ's martyred & persecuted Bride.
May this be our battle cry, South Church! Our God IS a Mighty Fortress! Take refuge in Him.
This Sunday we will sing of our "bulwark, never failing". The sent Son of God is our Strength! He is Lord of Hosts, never changing, ever faithful. He has conquered sin & death, and He will win the battle!
Eager to worship with you,
