“Nailing the theses to the church doors proved to require more than merely convincing officials to grant us access. Because the doors are no longer wooden but metal (now engraved with Luther’s words), we had to fashion a wooden frame to which we could then fasten the ninety-five new theses. Interestingly, I found that the pounding of the nails served as a genuinely archetypal act: The sound of the nails entering the wooden frame was not unlike the sound of nails being driven into a cross….’“*
Ever since Matthew Fox’s historic protest at the Wittenberg Cathedral and his re-enactment at the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, we have received requests for replica scrolls listing the 95 Theses or Articles of Faith for a Christianity for the Third Millennium.
Beautifully formatted and clearly printed as heavyweight paper posters or canvas scrolls, they’re sized for display in your home or office, dormitory room, church hall or conference center…
…or for nailing at the door of a local cathedral as you join Matthew Fox in your own prophetic protest against religious corruption!
Truth is, it’s easy to burn out or lose connection to your joyous, mystical, prophetic core of healthy spirituality as our world suffers through this dark night of social and environmental injustice and destruction, cultural addictions and couch-potatoitis.
So take action today – keep the Theses before you as you pray, meditate or work. Share them with your loved ones and community as a wake-up call!
Be an agent of change in your corner of the world – affirm the empowerment and healing of a faith based on Original Blessing rather than Original Sin!
