"What is your only comfort in life and in death?"  The Reformation was provoked by that question.  Our lives are driven by it.  People look for comfort in all sorts of places, but find superficial and short-lived parodies of God's comfort in the gospel of his Son.

This is the first question of the Heidelberg Catechism, whose 450th Anniversary I'll be celebrating in Heidelberg, Germany, with brothers and sisters who still find comfort in the message that this amazing instrument has conveyed to generations of Christians in every part of the world.  The celebration includes talks from experts on the history and content of the Catechism as well as pastors from various countries.  We'll even have a chance to visit the university where the Catechism's author, Zacharius Ursinus, was  professor, and the Church of the Holy Ghost, where Caspar Olevianus was the pastor. Besides, it's a charming, romantic, and majestic city with a rich history that is apparent from every angle.  Whether hearing talks, strolling along the Rhine with its lush hills, vineyards, and castles, or enjoying the Palatine cuisine, it will be a memorable time.

It's open to the public!  So please join me.  I'd love to share with friends this opportunity to give thanks to God for a gift that keeps on giving.

    This is so cool! I am a big fan of the whitehorse inn because of the constant reminders of grace from the gospel and the biblical faithfulness. I live in Kentucky and I am engaged to a woman who lives in Heidelberg and just shared this with her.

    It sounds like a great conference and I would love to attend!

    I don't know if it's a typo but I think the last sentence of the first paragraph should be "outside the gospel of his Son" instead of "in the gospel of his Son."
