Commemoration of Philipp Melanchthon and the presentation of the Augsburg Confession

Today the Episcopal Church honors an anniversary and a reformer we tend to think of as "Lutheran," but they belong to the church universal and to the ecclesia semper reformanda - the church always in need of reform (and always reforming!).

Information on Philipp Melanchthon (né Philipp Schwartzerd) and on the Augsburg Confession

I needed the update too.
