At the home of Clan Grits we celebrate Reformation Day

The more I ponder this event in history I am grateful for the opportunity to remember this day and the firestorm it started in our world.  We have been talking about this day for a while now in our house– not only what it means for us as Christians in the 21st century, but what the men of the reformation must have been like to make the stands they did.

And of course in our house, we talk about how we are going to celebrate– specifically what we are going to eat!  It's like a feast day in our house and we love it!  Tonight there's enchiladas (can't find the link for it… let me know if you want a recipe for the best and I'll get it to you!), black bean and couscous salad, caramel corn, cowboy cookies, chips and salsa, brown sugar smokies, bowls of candy, ice cream sundaes, hot buttered rum and some "German" beverages in celebration of the country of orgin of the day, and I hear some guests are bringing a "Diet of Worms" cake!  (ok, so dirt pie with gummy worms but pretty clever if you ask me!) 

I don't want to take away from the Christian liberty of others who have examined the alternative celebration of the day but we are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Reformation Day!  

Here's some other things I've written previously about the day if you care to read. 
Either way, have a wonderful day!
