Happy Birthday John!
Today marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. For your weekend celebration, why not check out the free download on itunes.rts.edu of "The Calvin I Never Knew" by Dr. Frank James. Or, pull out your bedside copy of The Institutes and read your favorite book.
Want some John Calvin trivia? He and Thomas Hobbes were the inspiration for one of my favorite comic strips ever, Calvin & Hobbes. And just in case you were wondering about my political philosophy (tipping the hat to Hobbes here), I prefer John Locke.
I'm publicly embracing my inner nerd.
