Selfie project

Come October 2016, you will be able to find QR code stickers on the doors of many Lutheran churches in the Munich area. Scanning one such code will lead you to one of Martin Luther’s 95 theses, each sticker to a different one.  You can win a the Golden Theses Pass, if put your smartphone to work once more at each stop and take a selfie in front of at least 20 different theses doors and send us those pictures.

The Theses Pass is a unique certificate only available at the ebw and a nice way to remember the historic year of 2017, when we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
