OVERVIEW

TOUR LEADER – PASTOR BILL CRABTREE

Pastor Bill Crabtree has served as a Lutheran pastor for 35 years.  He has served as Sr. Pastor at Emanuel Lutheran in Lodi, Ca and Silverdale Lutheran in Silverdale, WA (near Seattle).  The Reformation and Martin Luther’s life are a lifelong passion for him.  He has served as a pastor for Wittenberg English Ministries in 2016 during a sabbatical where he spent a month in Germany studying and learning. Teaching about Luther and the Reformation continues to be central to his pastoral teaching ministry and he is excited to connect all the places, events, and sites we will visit with specific writings of Martin Luther and other Reformers.  

TOUR DESCRIPTION:

Travel with us from the capital of Germany, Berlin, through the beautiful landscape of northeastern Germany visiting some of Europe’s most historic towns and sites.  Learn about Berlin’s past and present as we visit landmarks of the city’s Prussian, Imperial, Nazi, and Cold War eras as well as today’s modern city.  Enjoy picturesque medieval towns and villages, storybook castles and palaces, and stunning landscapes of forests, rivers, and mountains. 

We will follow Martin Luther’s accomplishments in life, from birth to death, throughout the region.  A German theologian and religious reformer,  Luther was the catalyst for the 16th century Protestant Reformation.  Luther precipitated a movement that reformed certain basic tenets of Christian belief and resulted in the division of Christendom between Roman Catholicism and new Protestant traditions. Learn, see, and experience his life and beliefs while enriching your spiritual knowledge and understanding.
