Germany

Through Lutheran Journeys, the great history of Germany and its churches comes alive. From the Augustinian Monastery at Erfurt to the infamous door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, your community will catch a glimpse into the very foundations of Lutheranism. You will experience Martin Luther’s rich legacy from his humble beginnings as a monk to his triumphant revelations as a reformer.

 What better way to learn more about the history of your faith than to visit the faith-communities of Germany? While your community walks in the footsteps of the Lutheran Church’s great pioneer, you will learn as much about your collective past as you will about yourselves.
