Celebrate and reflect on 500 years of the Reformation

Celebrate and enter into discussion with others, reflect on and acknowledge what divides us, rejoice, pray, sing, dance, get talking, sit in quiet reflection, worship, attend exhibitions, spell out freedom, discover individuality, remember the past and shape the future. And always: dancing, singing, enjoying, praying - and seeking the presence of God.

In the Reformation Summer 2017, everybody is called to focus on what the events of 500 years ago mean today and invited to many events in church communities and various regions of Germany, at academies and museums.
