A Historical Day

Today is perhaps one of the most important days in Church history.  It was on this day in 1517 that Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the church in Wittenburg protesting some of the practices of the Catholic church and hoping to bring about reform.  As a result, Luther was called before a church council, the Diet of Worms, to be held accountable for his writings and teachings.  It is the act that sparked what came to be known as the Protestant Reformation.

This clip from the movie Luther is of Martin answering the accusations being brought against him and is one of my favorite movie scenes.

Who are some modern day Martin Luthers in the church that are bringing about a new reformation?  What is it that needs reformed?
