The Basics

   Do you know the fundamentals? 
   Luther wrote the Small Catechism to help parents teach their children the basics of the Christian faith.
   He was shocked to learn how few Christians knew the Apostles Creed, the 10 Commandments, or what they meant.  They couldn’t name the 10 commandments, the meaning of Baptism or of Holy Communion, or of the Apostles Creed.
   As we approach the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, begun by Martin Luther, have things changed much?
   We have so many opportunities to do better, and we can do better.
   Go to your app store and search for “catechism”,  look for the white vine on a burgundy background logo.
   Download the free version and spend some time with it every day.
   Luther did.  And he wrote it!
