God, through His promised mercies, has preserved His churchacross the centuries by orchestrating circumstances, inspiring people, and altering the direction ofnations. One of the unique moments that reveal this to be true is the great reformation of the churches inthe sixteenth century. It was a change for the fortunes of the churches that impacted western culture forfive hundred years, laid the foundation of our national beginnings, and spanned the Protestant missionsmovement that has grown to global proportions.Please join Dr. John Hannah and me as we lead you back to where it all began in places like Wittenberg,Zurich, and Geneva. We will literally traverse the streets, enter the buildings, and climb stairswhere Luther once walked. We will share his passion for the wonder of forgiving grace purchased byChrist alone and received through grace alone. The Bavarian and Swiss Alps will prove breathtaking, butto see Zwingli’s church and Calvin’s Geneva will make the wonder of it all even more impressive.It will be a life-changing time of travel, the collection of enduring memories, and the deepening ofyour faith.Dr. Jim EckmanPresident, GRACE UNIVERSITYDr. Jim EckmanPresident Grace UniversityDr. John HannahDistinguished Professor ofHistorical Theology atDallas Theological SeminaryMorning Star Tours • 9461 LBJ Freeway, Suite 208 • Dallas, Texas 75243 • (972) 690-0092 • (800) 809-5412 • www.MorningStarTours.com
