The historic "Black Church" in Brasov, Transylvania, a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Augsburg Confession, Romania, was the site of an Oct. 31 Reformation Day service.  The sanctuary is more than 700 years old.  It became known by that name because of a extensive fire in Brasov some 300 years ago that turned the exterior stone of the church building a dark color.
