The Odessa Record -

Documentary of life of Martin Luther on 11/2

 

October 19, 2017



On the evening of Thursday, November 2, at Any Occasion Banquet Hall on First Avenue in Odessa, the Odessa Public Library will present a new dramatized documentary chronicling the life and work of Martin Luther. Martin Luther was a German monk who slowly began to find fault with what the medieval Catholic Church was teaching and with how Church officials were acting. In 1517, Luther wrote a document for debate, but instead began a movement that changed the course of the history of the Church, Germany, Europe, Western Civilization and the entire world. Today, the influence of what Luther did and taught can be felt even in our everyday lives, whether the subject is education, music, art or culture.

The documentary includes live-action reenactments that portray the actual events, words and writings of Luther himself. Professors, pastors, priests and other Luther experts were interviewed for the project. The documentary can be viewed by people of all ages.

Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served. The viewing will begin around 6:30 p.m. Please contact Julie Jantz at the Odessa Public Library (509-982-2654) or Mark Squire (509-982-0175) with questions.
