Back to Basics: Luther’s Legacy
Today’s feature explores the story behind the Protestant Reformation – an event widely considered one of the most influential turning points in history.
In fact, historian Philip Schaff had this to say about it:
“The Reformation of the sixteenth century is, next to the introduction of Christianity, the greatest event in history. It marks the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times. Starting from religion, it gave, directly or indirectly, a mighty impulse to every forward movement, and made Protestantism the chief propelling force in the history of modern civilization.”
Movin’ Together – Journal of Thanks 2017
Dr. Nicole Mayo explained that writing seems to help our efforts and intentions to be lasting, rather than fleeting. “Research has shown to write a few days a week, notating five things that you are thankful for, especially the people in your life. Making the journal more personal, not a rote habit, but a transmission of the heart.” Dr. Mayo also cited the importance of speaking gratefulness out loud, with the understanding that appreciative words and conversations orient our mindset in a thankful direction. As we speak and think positively, our thought life becomes more positive!
