Follow in the footsteps of Luther, the Great Reformer

Pastor Karen Behling and Professor David Behling led their group on a ten-day reformation journey to Germany to follow in the footsteps of Martin Luther. Read what Pastor Karen Behling had to say about her experience:


“Visiting the St. Nicholas Church in Leipzig was an incredibly moving experience for many in the group – it took us a bit by surprise, since we had been so focused on Luther that we hadn’t connected the dots until we were really there – having already been in Berlin to see the wall and take in the History Museum helped to make for a greater impact.

Erfurt was absolutely charming, and the hotel location was perfect for exploring the city center on our own.

My son and I loved visiting the Berliner Dom on our own and would encourage future groups (able to tackle the many stairs) to pay the 7 euro admission for the self-guided tour. The view of the city is spectacular, and the crypt was very interesting also!

Our group seemed to really appreciate learning a simple German table prayer that we said together each evening – we also made some use of Luther’s Morning and Evening Prayers and German Lord’s Prayer and sang together a few times on the bus.

This trip went above and beyond our hopes and expectations! It was wonderfully well planned and organized, and our Tour Manager, Bus Driver and local tour guides were outstanding!”
