Examining the "R" Word

Reform is usually associated with something negative.  As a child, I remember hearing of troublemakers who were sent to “Reform School,” an alternative school for those who had misbehaved in some way.

This fall, we commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the event that most scholars point to as the official beginning of the Protestant Reformation: the posting of the 95 Theses by Martin Luther on October 31, 1517.
