Calvin 500

Yes, next Friday, 10th July will mark the 500th anniversary of John Calvin's birth. Still wondering what all the fuss is about but can't afford to go to the swanky Calvin 500 Conference in Geneva? Never fear, dear reader. Cinderella shall go to the ball. Well, not quite. But in the next day or so I'll be starting a new series called, "A Very Rough Guide to Calvin's Theology" right here on this blog.

If you follow the link you give to the Calvin 500 conference , it says that 'The commemoration is now less than two years away'. Don't you just love the way Calvinists are always bang up to date? (And yes, before you say it Guy, I know - they're right. It IS less than two years away...)

Yes, around 10 days is just a teeny bit less than 2 years.

Hi Guy,
Looking forward to your Calvin posts. Are you going to Geneva?

Just to let you know as well, I'm finally getting back to Double Usefulness.

Trust you're well,
A

Good to hear from you Andrew. No, I won't be going to Geneva. Good to hear that Double Usefulness is back in action.
