Reformation Sunday 2010

In order to make the Reformation come alive for the congregation I crafted some hats in the style of famous Reformers. The hats were available for folks to try on during coffee hour; unfortunately I forgot my camera. I enlisted a willing volunteer at home in case you missed it. Here are the hats with the captions from the Wikipedia entries of the Reformers who wore them underneath. If you would like to learn more about the Protestant Reformation, you can learn more at the main Wikipedia entry.
