A Meditation on Christ’s Incarnation

Posted by on Dec 25, 2014 in Devotional | Comments Off on A Meditation on Christ’s Incarnation

“Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” “He is the Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called, chosen and faithful followers.” Revelation 17:14 During this time of year when we naturally think of the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the lyrics from this moving hymn (below) will remind you, I sincerely hope, of the simplicity which surrounds the nativity scene of our Lord. His birth place was a rough-hewn wooden stable, populated by farm animals, and with all the sights, sounds, and smells that might be commonly...

Trip to Geneva

Posted by on Jul 19, 2014 in News | Comments Off on Trip to Geneva

During late May and early June my wife and I had the opportunity to travel to Geneva, Switzerland! What a joy it was to be given the opportunity to talk all about John Calvin (1509-1564) and the on-going impact of his ministry four hundred and fifty years after his death.
