Thankful He Stood!

Today we celebrate and honor Martin Luther, who, 488 years ago stood trial at the Diet of Worms (pronounced "DEE-et of Voerms"). Worms is a city in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, on the Rhine River.

It was on this date, April 18, 1521, that Luther gave his historic response to the question of whether certain writings were his and if he would revoke them as heretical. His response is depicted in the clip below from the 2003 movie Luther.
