Happy Reformation Day?

Ever since that fateful day on October 31, 1517 when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saint's Church in Wittenburg, protestants celebrate today as Reformation Day. Next year will mark 500 years of the protestant church. However, as I sit here on my couch reflecting the current divisions within the church, I'm sad. The "one holy, catholic and apostolic church" that we confess to believe in the Nicene Creed is anything but "one" -- she's deeply divided.
