When facing lack of awareness or apathy towards our history and heritage, many churches host lectures or give a special sermon series. For most people (especially kids), none of that works.
If we just keep doing what we’ve been doing, we will miss an incredible opportunity to Catechize and reach the next generation with Luther’s story and more importantly, his teaching: the Justification of Sinners by Grace Alone, through Faith Alone, in the work of Christ Alone.
After working with Jr. High & High School Students, teaching Bible Studies, and having two daughters of my own, I found out how important it is to celebrate what we want to cultivate.
Mark, Nathan, and Scott of Reformation Gear have created the Martin Luther Plush Figure, a fun toy that helps kids identify with their new buddy, Martin! This 10″ real-to-life replica of the 16th century reformer comes with a big smile and a printed copy of Luther’s Morning & Evening Prayers. Best of all, he is a great conversation starter that will help you quickly go from a discussion of who Luther was right to the Gospel and why that message is just as important today as it was 500 years ago.
Love this Martin! Great size–he is large enough to cut a dashing figure, small enough to fit nicely on a bookshelf or desk… or to use more creatively! (I’m thinking of incorporating an “Elf on the Shelf” type of activity for each Sunday of 2017.) I like that he is holding the Bible–essential, really–and that Luther’s Morning & Evening Prayers are also included. Facial expression is friendly but wise, just enough expression. Great to include the info on the bottom of packaging, plus an online reference to go and seek more info. Great job! Thank you! Where & when will these be available? May I post this photo on Facebook? I would love to post where folks can purchase, as well!
This Martin Luther plush figure from ReformationGear.com is a fun and educational way to introduce your children to one of the greatest figures in history. A visit to the web site promises interesting and useful information about the Great Reformer, too. I plan to purchase one for my own grandchildren AND for each child I baptize during this celebration year.
Love my plush Luther. I especially like his friendly face.
My plush Luther stands atop my mantle in a place of honor. A constant reminder of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation! Great conversation starter as well.
Normally the Martin Luther Plush Figure costs $25, but Churches and Christian Schools can now get them at a special discounted rate of $15 ea. when you order a case of 12 or more.
