Luther Nailed It

Luther Nailed It

Today it has been exactly 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittenberg church. He did not know his actions would change history but they did.

What if happiness is holy? But may the righteous be glad     and rejoice before God;     may they be happy and joyful. (Psalm 68:3, NIV,*) Happiness is an outward expression of an inner joy.
