Blog Progress

Thanks for your patience with the blog as I have been (slowly) building some of the permanent resource pages.  I’m getting closer to finishing off some of the pages.

I’m especially excited about the catechism page, which, by design, will develop slowly over the next couple of years.  Also, the churches page gives some recommendation of churches that I would consider as being like-minded to my convictions.  My links page will eventually be fully annotated and hopefully full of useful resources in various categories.

Thanks for coming by in the meantime!

“According to the measure of our faith, so shall the measure of our peace be.” – Arthur Hildersham

Happy Birthday, John Calvin

john_calvinOn July 10, 1509, John Calvin was born in Noyon, France.  Today is the 50oth anniversary of his birth.

Growing up in a fundamentalist, Baptist church I rarely heard the name of Calvin mentioned, and when I did it was generally as pejoritive.  Most of my life, I associated Calvin (and Calvinism) with a sub-Christian, anti-Evangelical tinge.

However, in the last six years or so, I have come to deeply appreciate Calvin and his teachings.

So it is appropriate on this day to remember one of the greatest influences in the history of theology, and arguably in the development of Western society.
