What do you do on a Luther tour in Germany in 2017?
Look for Luther, of course!
Spotted Luther at the back of the Church of the Holy Spirit (Heiliggeistkirche) in Heidelberg …
Zoomed in to see him in a window in St James’s Church (St Jakob) in Rothenburg ob der Tauber …
And there he was again in plaques, statues and placenames everywhere …
In the end though, it is nice to bring Luther home with you too!
PS I was actually really struck by seeing the places where Luther had actually preached. One was St Mary’s Church (Stadtkirche St. Marien) in Wittenberg where Luther did a lot of his preaching, and another was the pulpit in St Andrew’s Church (Andreaskirche) in Eisleben where he preached his last four sermons.
Marie Pawsey was excited to do a Luther tour at last, and also to be in Wittenberg in Germany on the 500th anniversary of Reformation Day.
