Reformation anniv in Dimakuchi church

Churches in Dimakuchi on Tuesday observed 500th reformation anniversary holding exhibitions, conferences, panel discussions along with other parts of the globe.

Martin Luther posted his famous 95 theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. The door functioned as a bulletin board for various announcements related to academic and church affairs. Luther's posting on the door of the Wittenberg castle church were the prelude to Reformation, one of the central events in European history. Protestants observe this day as Reformation Day. The Reformation encouraged the development of an image of humanity that was based on new Christian Concept of freedom. Assam Evangelical Lutheran churches celebrate with faith. The Reformation crucially influenced enlightenment and basic human rights, just like modern democracy.

Borengajuli Lutheran's celebrated the day with the hoisting of Reformation flag by Rev. P. Hial, Pastor Borengajuli Parish along with church members and a day long programme.
