The Black Eagle was the name of the tavern that Martin Luther and his associates frequented as they encouraged one another in the ministry of the Word as God used them to restore the church to the centrality of the gospel – that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Martin Luther, in his irreverently witty way, said this about how God used them:
“I simply taught, preached, and wrote God’s Word; otherwise I did nothing. And then, while I slept, or drank Wittenberg beer with my Philip [Melanchthon] and my Amsdorf [Nicholaus von], the Word so greatly weakened the papacy that never a prince or emperor did such damage to it. I did nothing. The Word did it all.”Martin Luther
For any men who want to let the Word of God reform our own hearts and grow in the leadership qualities that Jesus demonstrated in his life and teaches in his Word today, please join us.
We have historically met in the McMenamin’s Cellar Bar, but are on hiatus at the moment. See Aaron Reid with questions about other Men’s Ministry events.
