Happy New Year!

On the first blog posting of a new year, it's traditional to wish all my readers a Happy New Year. May you know God's richest blessings in 2009 (and may you remember to write 2009 in chequebooks and other dated material!!!)

  1. May Margaret and I wish Lynsey and you a most blessed 2009, a year when you will know much of the Lord's blessing on your lives and ministry.

    I am delighted that you have remembered Reformation Day, and also pleased that you were aware that the anniversary of the martyrdoms of Latimer and Ridley were missed this past year.

    You are now in pole position to ensure that this is remembered next year, and every year thereafter.

    As a Presbyterian, I was never able to understand why the CoE refused to go all the way with the reformation of the church in England, and decided to hold on to many of the Romish externals.

    What rationale was given to you at college to uphold your system? This is a genuine query.

    Are you aware that this year is the 500th anniversary of the birth of the great reformer, John Calvin? May I invite you and any of your friends and colleagues who are interested to a two-day conference in Attleborough, Norwich, Wed and Thurs 15th and 16th April 2009. There will be six papers over the two days. For details, please visit the site below. .pdf

    This conference will highlight authentic Calvinism as opposed to the deviations as found in, say, Westminster theology. Indeed, the soteriology of Calvin is reflected very accurately in the 39 Articles of Religion, but not in WCF theology.

    See what you think. I hope you can attend.
