Shepherd of the Hills coordinated for the ELCA Mountaintop Ministerium, a one-time screening of the new Martin Luther film, “Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World”. The free showing was held at the Garrett College Auditorium (McHenry, MD) on Friday, October 20. Food was provided by Emmanuel Lutheran, Bittinger, and the Accident Parish.
500 years ago, Martin Luther triggered a seismic upheaval that rocked the western world-with an impact that continues to reverberate to this day. This entertaining new film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, secret hideouts, and life-or-death showdowns. At the same time, it's a story about the most important questions of life, including "Who am I?" "What is my purpose" and "How do I get right with God?"
The ELCA Mountaintop Ministerium includes the following Lutheran congregations: Accident Parish: St. John (Cove), St. Paul (Accident) and Grace (Friendsville); Aurora-Red House Parish: St. John (Red House) and St. Paul (Aurora, WV); Emmanuel (Bittinger), Saint John (Davis, WV), Saint John of Meadow Mountain (Swanton), Saint Mark’s (Oakland), Shepherd of the Hills (McHenry), and Zion (Jennings).
Rights to the free, one-time screening was made possible by a grant from Thrivent Financial.
